 Who We Are

We are a group of community volunteers with a passion for running and for improving the lives of our children. We have worked to bring a first-class race to Redwood City that would also raise essential funds for our schools. We represent the Redwood City Education Foundation; Redwood City School District; Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services; and individuals who are proud to live in the best city in the Bay Area (in our humble opinion).
