Alamo Run expects to draw 200+ runners

Proceeds benefit Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center youth education programs

The fourth annual Alamo Run is taking place downtown this Sunday, allowing friends, families, young kids and even dogs to experience a 5K competitive and fun run.

More than 200 runners are expected to participate in the 8:30 a.m. event starting at 3189 Danville Blvd. Last year, participants turned out from Alamo, Danville, Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, Concord, Brentwood and even San Francisco, organizers said.

Prizes will be awarded to the top boy and girl runners in three age groups between 18 years old and younger as well as to top performers among eight adult age groups from 19 years old and up.

Prices for pre-registered runners are $35 and $25 for ages 12 and under, while same-day registration is $40 and $30 for ages 12 and under.

Proceeds from the Alamo Run are used to support the youth education programs of the Walnut Creek-based Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center.
