About This Activity
Pinkalicious Divas is hosting our inaugural PinkDiva 5K Run/Walk on October 4, 2014! This event is to honor and remember our loved ones, family, friends, or colleagues who have fought breast cancer head-on.
This year, Pinkalicious Divas honors Teresa Thomas, the woman who continues to inspire our organization and our quest to improve the accessibility to breast cancer support programs within the South Bay Area community.
Proceeds from the PinkDiva 5k will help fund Pinkalicious Divas’ breast cancer support programs, such as the Bosom Buddy peer-to-peer breast cancer support program, chemotherapy comfort kits, and free makeover events. A portion of the proceeds will also go directly to the breast cancer research projects led by the Canary Foundation that focus specifically on their Breast Cancer Early Detection Initiative.
We ask that you come together as friends, families, and neighbors to show your support and help eradicate breast cancer and support those currently fighting the disease!

The course is along the Los Gatos Creek Trail. The course is flat and suitable for runners and walkers of any level.
TIMING – START LINE
Chip timing will be provided. Official race times will be posted within 24 hours of the end of the race. This course will be closing on a pace of about 18 minutes per mile with all participants completed by 10:00 a.m. If you cannot keep this pace, we ask that you follow trail etiquette until you reach the finish area. In addition, the aid station and course volunteer spots will be closed based on this pace.
Start Line/Corrals: We ask that you “self-seed” at the start line, meaning that faster people start in the front and slower runners/walkers start in the back of the pack.
NO GEAR CHECK
There will NOT be a gear check. Please leave valuable items at home, and use your car to store any gear you may need Post Race. Pinkalicious Divas is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
On Course: There will be one Water Station on the course, at approximately miles 1.5. Water will be the only beverage served.
Finish Area: Water will be provided for each participant at the finish line.
We will provide paper cups however we encourage you to bring your own water bottles and we can provide refills. In order to make this a green and enjoyable event for all, please dispose of any gel wrappers, bottles, or any other garbage you may want to shed yourself of during the race at any of the aid station. Keep in mind, volunteers will need to collect any trash left on the course. Please dispose of your items as close to the aid station as possible.
We will have an EMT stationed at the at start/finish area. If you need medical help while on the course please let a volunteer know who can call the start/finish for help. There will be a first aid kit available at the Water Station.
Restrooms are available throughout the park.
POST RACE FESTIVITIES
We will also provide light snacks and drinks at the Post Race Festival for participants only, provided by various sponsors. Be sure to pack your ID and credit card so you can buy that "can't live without" item from our sponsors.
We like all animals, however due to safety regulations, there are no animals allowed on the course. If you bring your dog or pet, you will be removed from the course and disqualified without refund.
We love music, and do not ban MP3 Players and iPod such items, however, if you do chose to use these, please make sure the volume is at a level where you can hear your surroundings. It is your responsibility to be aware of your surroundings on the course.
Please be sure to check the weather leading up to race day. Be prepared for warm or cold weather. And bring clothing for the Post Race Festival.
