Thank you so much for participating in our first annual 5K River Run! We had so much fun we hope you did too!
Thank you all for helping us hit our goal of $10,000 raised for Grind Out Hunger. We are so appreciative!
We had a total of 269 Racers Running a total of 941.5 miles! The race course was a little longer than a 5K it was a total of 3.5 miles due to the location of the turn-around. We are so proud of all of you for an incredible job on Saturday. Thank you for your patience with us as this was our inaugural event. We learned a lot from doing this event and will be doing additional races in the future, so please stay tuned! Each of our races will benefit a particular charity. We love being fit and running for a cause!
We had over 100 racers register within 10 days of the event, AFTER we did our t-shirt order. Some of you may not have received the shirt size that you had requested. If you did NOT receive a shirt size that you originally ordered or if you want to purchase additional shirts for yourself or a friend please drop your UN-worn and UN-washed shirt to CORE and let us know. We will check your order and get you the correct size.
Santa Cruz CORE River Run shirts can be purchased for $17 and the money goes to support Grind Out Hunger.
ORDER DEADLINE: Friday, June 28th by 5pm. No late changes accepted.
Since the race course was a bit longer than the traditional 5k, finish times might be a little longer than anticipated.
