The run begins and ends at the Alex Madonna Expo Center in San Luis Obispo, CA; the race starts at 8:30am. You do not have to be a serious runner to participate; we encourage all walkers and runners who are comfortable on trails to come out to celebrate health and fitness while enjoying the healthy lifestyle fostered on the Central Coast.
