With Snow Cones, Freebies, Friends & Loads of Fun, Sunday, July 22!
Join in the fun at Fleet Feet Menlo Park’s free, family-friendly Summer Fest Run Happy 5k Fun Run & Walk starting at 9 a.m. in Fremont Park before the opening of day two of the big Menlo Summer Fest on Sunday, July 22.
There’s a pre-run warm-up and stretching lead by Fleet Feet coaches and finishers will receive snow cones, refreshments and prizes at the post-run cool down in Fremont Park!
The running pros at Fleet Feet of Menlo Park are sponsoring the event and they’re experts at putting on a good race—they put on a Fun Run every week from their store. “We are big believers that more runners equals more camaraderie and more fun,” says Jim Gothers, owner of the Menlo Park Fleet Feet. “Afterwards we have a social hour in the store where people hang out. Some people see running as a chore and intimidating, and we’re all about keeping it fun and enjoyable. We like to get people exercising together; it’s more fun with others. It builds community and that’s what our store’s all about.”
The 5k course winds through downtown Menlo Park. The fun run is family-friendly and open to all. Go at your own pace and enjoy the scenery. Dogs and strollers are okay too!
