All San Juan Unified schools can use the race as a fundraiser. Schools receive $10 for each adult and $5 for every student/child that register in the school’s name.

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.
