Event Description

The Academy Run is a race for the whole family!  There is a 1K for a short distance runner/walker and a 5K for more of a challenge (the course is stroller and wheelchari accessible).  After your morning run or walk, enjoy a Family Festival sponsored by California American Mothers.
