Runs & Walks to Benefit People


Freedom Road 2 Mile & 10K

A Benefit for the Drug Policy Alliance.

$50 billion is wasted annually on the War on Drugs, which incarcerates more then 500,000 yearly, destroying lives and the economy while accomplishing nothing, other than overflowing the prisons and forcing violent offenders onto the street. As a result, in California we spend more for prisons than we do for public education.

This event has already been run. The results are available here.

2 Mile and 10K

8:30 a.m., Monday, July 04, 2005 4th of July : Event starts at 8:30 a.m. at John F. Kennedy Drive near 8th Avenue in Golden Gate Park. Race day registration from 7 a.m. at the Conservatory of Flowers on JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park. Both are USA Track & Field (USATF) certified flat fast loop courses, that finish in front of the Conservatory of Flowers. Within easy walking distance of the starts and offering ample parking in surrounding areas.

Winners of all People Events generally receive a breakfast for two at Jo Ann's Café (1131 El Camino Real in South San Francisco), which placed second for best American Breakfast in California by Zagat Survey of Restaurants, Tickets for Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society concerts, and Sports Basement Gift Certificates. Prizes for place winners, random drawing winners, and top pledge collectors, often include a vacation at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel, Maui's most Hawaiian Hotel, See's Candies, and a stay at the famous San Remo Hotel near San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf.
