4th Annual New Balance Run for Recess a Success!

  1. Updates

With more than 750 people in attendance, the 2013 New Balance 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run benefiting Playworks raised $5,000 and gave 500 runners the opportunity to participate in a family-friendly race.

The warm sun, wonderful ocean views, and volunteers high-fiving participants along the course, made this year’s 5K and 1-mile fun run a true community event.

Thank you to all of those who came out to show their support for Playworks at our 4th Annual Run for Recess. A special thank you to our lead sponsor, New Balance, for partnering with us to ensure everyone had a great day.

You can find your race time and place here. Be sure to check it out and start training for next year's Run for Recess!
