The Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD) presents the 2019 Vallejo Waterfront Weekend 5K Glo Run on October 5, 2019. The run starts with a ferry ride @ 6:30pm from the Vallejo Waterfront Terminal to the newly built Mare Island Terminal, then a point-to-point course around Vallejo’s historical naval base. Participants will finish the last mile running across the Mare Island Causeway Bridge with scenic views of the "Trolls Under the Bridge" art project and waterfront areas.
This is the only evening race in all of the Napa and Solano County area. Participants will be provided snacks and glo sticks for their run/walk. Come ready to GLOW and race for our Vallejo schools!
This event supports school programs and activities for students in the VCUSD.
