2014: our 25th anniversary event!
Thanks to everyone who came out on a perfect day Saturday, August 9, 2014 for our SILVER ANNIVERSARY event.
Race results and summary are now posted
Extra-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!
General Event Information:
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)
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!
