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. “It’s very social, lots of people running and talking with their pals,” 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. Go at your own pace and enjoy the scenery.
