SARATOGA 5K Fun Run and Walk
Presented by Saratoga Education Foundation
November 5, 2023 - 8:30 am
Attention all Saratoga families and friends!
The Saratoga Education Foundation is excited to announce our second annual 5K Fun Run and Walk. Last year, we had an amazing turnout, with over 900 participants coming out to support SEF and SUSD schools. This year, we’re planning an even bigger event so lace up your sneakers on Sunday, November 5th and join us for a morning of fitness and fun, all while supporting a great cause!
Race your friends and family through neighborhood streets then stay for post-race activities, including food trucks, awards, raffles, games, and a special Kids Dash for children 5 and under. All proceeds from the event benefit specialized educational programs in Saratoga Union School District like elementary makerspace and science labs, general music, physical education and middle school STEM class.
Race day is Daylight Savings Time, so spend the extra hour with us having fun, being active and building community! Please note, no dogs are allowed on the campus or race course.
Registration is now open, so don't wait to sign up.Whether you're a seasoned runner or a first-timer, the 5K Fun Run and Walk is a great way to be active, support SUSD students, and spend time with your community. We can't wait to see you there!
