About This Activity

Getting to the Start and Finish Area

Participants will need to walk 1/4 of a mile to the start/finish area from registration and parking area located at 101 Twin Dolphin Drive, Redwood City. There will be posts marking the way to the start and finish area. When you are done, come back to the staging area.

Course Description - 5K Fun Run/Walk

5K will start just east of the foot bridge over the cables or west of the library. The course will go northeast. At the fork where the path turns to dirt on the left & the path on right goes along the road, the runners will turn around. This is approximately .75 miles. Runners will retrace their steps, cross the bridge, & head west hugging the Belmont slough. Runners will turn right & cross the bridge. At the turnaround at the other side, runners will retrace their steps & head to the finish.

Course Description - 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk

The 1 Mile will start west of the footbridge over the cables. Participants will head west on the path closest to the Belmont Slough. At .55 mile, participants will turn around and head back. The finish line will be 50 yards from the start line.


After the 5K, check the board at registration area to see if you won one of the local prizes. All 1 mile and 5K entrants are eligible.

Most charitable events keep most of the profits form entries and take a percentage of pledges, but we do better passing on 100% of pledges. We direct a higher percentage to the cause, which in this case is Foster Youth. This sounds noble, but needs your support to succeed.
