About The Race: This is the first annual “Run For a Cause” which was established to benefit charities or individuals in need of support. Each year we plan on donating to a new cause. This year’s recipients will be the Lending Hearts Foundation and the Scott Lang Memorial Fund. North Park provides us with a beautiful venue to kick off our event. Please help us spread the word by telling others to “Run For a Cause.”

About the Course: This loop course is mostly flat with a few slight inclines. We are USATF sanctioned, and the professionals from Runner’s High will be timing the event. Many races in North Park are at the boat house, so our course gives runners a new view and a different feel of the park.
