Join us for the 3rd annual RUN FOR THE HEALTH OF IT race. Great for families, friends, and co-workers who want to challenge themselves in this fun outdoor event. ALL AGES are welcome to RUN or WALK to the finish line in support of the essential work and services provided by the Grandview Foundation. This event is dedicated to raising awareness about the connection between physical and mental health, especially among those struggling with addiction. We have seen a tremendous increase in recovery when physical exercise is included in the recovery process.

WE RUN FOR HEALTH AND A BETTER LIFE!

Since 1969, Grandview Foundation has been providing addiction recovery treatment to underserved adults, regardless of their ability to pay, through residential, outpatient, sober living, and mental health services in a cooperative community setting that advocates participation in wellness programs. WHY RUN? Running offers physical and psychological health benefits to those fighting addiction. Most people who struggle with dependency seek ways of relieving pain or stress. Running provides an alternate, healthier method of relief and mood boost that helps suppress drug cravings and reduce temptations to relapse, in addition to helping with other health problems caused by addiction. We are proud to run together for health and increasing awareness, community, and funding for Grandview Wellness Programs.

COURSE DESCRIPTION
The start and finish take place just north of the Rose Bowl in the Oak Grove Park area across from La Cañada High School. It's a beautiful combination of road and a flat compact trail that takes the runners through the Historic Devils Gate Dam and into the Hahamongna Watershed. There is one water station for the 5K on the course.

 

STARTING LINE RULES
Registration and Runner Packet Pick-up open at 6:30 AM. Runners must be at the starting line no later than 7:45 AM. The race will begin on time at 8:00 AM. Line up according to your expected race pace. Faster runners should be positioned at the front of the start chute, while slower runners/walkers/ strollers start at the back. The goal is to have the start flow nicely and safely. Remember, you are being chip-timed.
