The second annual Run for a Healthy World race on Labor Day, September 6! The Labor Day race will again start and finish in the Sunnyvale Baylands Park. There will be a 5K run/walk and a 10K run. Both are on flat courses run mostly through the marsh lands on a mix of levee trails (with some single track parts), dirt and paved roads. Sound familiar? Its a very similar course to the one we us for our New Year's Day run. With two runs now in the baylands at Palo Alto and Sunnyvale there could be a Bay Prix in the future.

The funds raised from this event will support the charitable programs of World Runners. These programs include the education of young women in Africa, microfinance in third world countries and the Health Trust locally.
