Thank you to ALL the sponsors of this event and to ALL of the volunteers that made this one of the best events ever! The proceeds of the 25th Annual Moonlight Run & Walk will serve as "seed money" for the upcoming Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund drive (launched in November). We are so proud to be able to put on a community event like the Moonlight Run, that in turn provides support for the remarkable non profits in our community.

Since the Baylands are closed sunset to 8am (Municipal Code 22.04.315), I'll assume that the organizers obtained a special permit. It's a shame there are so many miscreants around here that the city needs to prohibit the use of our open space after sundown. It would be nice to take a peaceful moonlight stroll somewhere away from all the artificial lighting, and to hear some of those forgotten sounds of nighttime nature.

The Palo Alto Weekly co-sponsor this annual event with the City of Palo Alto Recreation and they do in fact, obtain a special permit every year for the walk and run along the levee's under the full moon. It makes for a very special evening.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
