About This Activity

Inaugural Sausalito Winterfest Run on December 14 to benefit at-risk youth in Marin County (Sausalito, CA) Registration is open for the inaugural Sausalito Winterfest Run, a family-friendly celebration featuring 8K and 5K races and a 1K Kidz Fun Run on a panoramic course for a primo cause on Sunday morning, December 14.

Proceeds from the event will benefit at-risk youth through the Dipsea Kidz program and Sausalito Waterfront Foundation.

“The Dipsea Kidz program, now in its third year, is making a difference in the lives of these youngsters in and out of the classroom. They have accepted and embraced the concept and excelled scholastically, athletically and as a team,” said Merv Regan, Dipsea Foundation Board Chairman. “Now under the leadership of head coach Ana Levaggi and her team and working closely with Foundation Director Michael Creedman, the program, as we had envisioned, is expanding from Willow Creek Academy into other Marin schools.”

Entry fee for the Winterfest Run is $40 for adults and $25 for children 16 & under for the 8K and 5K races. A $5 donation is requested for children 7 & under participating in the Kidz Fun Run. Runners will receive a free T-shirt and aluminum water bottle. Kidz Run finishers will all receive a medal.
Checks can be made payable to and mailed to the Dipsea Race Foundation, P.O. Box 10 in Mill Valley, CA 94942. Or register online at

Competitors and children who register and pay entry fee before December 1 will receive free admission a post-race pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. to noon.
