The race offers a commemorative shirt, medals for all kids run participants, awards in age divisions and ChronoTrack chip timing by Capital Road Race Management.

In addition to the 5K run/walk and kids races, there is a Family Festival with food, music, entertainment, prizes, raffles and activities for all ages. Younger students will enjoy performances by high school groups and photos with mascots like Dinger of the River Cats.

New this year is the Healthy Eating Expo organized by the San Juan Unified Nutrition Department showcasing the nutritious food offered at San Juan Unified schools, the district’s nutrition education program and more.
