This year's run takes place Oct. 11 at Iron Horse Middle School on Alcosta Boulevard in San Ramon. The improved 5K event includes two categories: 5K timed runners and 5K Fun Run/Walk. The participants for these events will start separately and will be sectioned into two categories. The 5K timed race will start promptly at 8:15 a.m. The 5K Fun Run/Walk participants will line up behind the 5K timed runners and will start their event at 8:30 a.m.
The half-marathon begins at 7:15 a.m. at Primo's Pizza, 298 Hartz Ave. in Danville. Late registration begins at 6 a.m. Entry fees range from $20 to $65, depending on which race is entered and when participants register.
During the next month, the schools will ramp up their support for the Primo's Run. Spirit week is Sept. 27-30, when schools go to Primo's Pizza and have a percentage of money spent donated to the run. The restaurant donates 50 percent of the total revenue from each day of Spirit Week. The day of the race a prize is given to the school that raises the most funds.
The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation distributes teacher and district grants to enhance education at the schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.
