2014 run walk shirtExtra-special thanks to TOM LONG -

Race coordinator Tom Long has announced this was his last year leading this event - he's retiring after 25 successful years.

The library is looking for a volunteer or group who would like to take over coordination of this long-standing Lodi tradition. The funds raised are used to purchase DVDs and other media items at the library, and we'd certainly like to see this support continue: contact the library co-directors if you're interested in helming this important event. 

THANK YOU TOM for an amazing 25 years building this event and raising funds for our library! You're a library hero!

Route Maps:

As a visual aid, we've mapped out the routes on Googlemaps:

  • The BLUE line is the 5k run or walk (which is a circular route)
  • The RED line is the 1-mile walk or kids run (which goes out-and-back)


Pledge Awards:

Pledges aren't required to participate in the run & walk, simply encouraged and very much appreciated! Go the extra mile as a runner or walker and gather pledge money for your efforts. In years past, top prizes have included mountain bikes and Apple iPads. It's worth the effort!

Event Awards:

In the 5K run a $100 gift certificate to Movin' Shoes will be awarded for each the overall top male and female runners. Additionally, medals will be given to the first and second place finishers, male and female, in each age division for the 5k run. All kids 14 and under who participate in the 1-mile run receive a ribbon. Additionally, door prizes are drawn after the race from all paid entries.
