Event Information

Join us on Sunday, October 20, 2019, for Education Alliance of Washoe County's Run for Education, the largest family and student running event in Northern Nevada focusing on fitness and fun in front of SCHEELS at the Outlets at Legends! There is a run for everyone: a 4K (timed), a Fun Run for little legs, and the Sparks Marina March (both untimed). Proceeds directly support student physical education and wellness in Washoe County elementary schools!

Note: If you are a parent of a Washoe County School District elementary student, check with your school principal to find out if the school has a Run Coordinator. School Run Coordinators are collecting paper registration forms/payments, and coordinating for bibs and t-shirts to come directly to their school. Otherwise, feel to free to register online here and pick up your items at SCHEELS as directed below.

Does your business want to reach an audience of 8,500 and support WCSD student health and wellness? Consider sponsoring the Run -- 100% of sponsor proceeds go back to schools and students through the Education Alliance of Washoe County, a non-profit organization dedicated to building community partnerships to help students succeed. Sponsor logos are prominently displayed on 4,000 t-shirts! Click here to learn more about the benefits of sponsorship.
