Runs & Walks to Benefit People


Freedom Road 5K and Jefferson Mile

A Benefit for
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP)

The War on Drugs destroys lives and the economy while accomplishing absolutely nothing, other than overflowing the prisons and forcing violent offenders onto the street. As a result, in California we spend more for our prisons than we do for our schools.

This event has already been run. The results are posted here, as well as event videos.

5K and Jefferson Mile

Both certified courses visit some of Golden Gate Park's best views. The scenic 5K course is relatively flat with a couple of easy hills and no repeats. The Mile course is flat and fast.
