As a Partner in Education we are proud to rally for this impactful event and look forward to seeing you all there! There will be a 5k and 10k run, or walk if you’re not the running type, along with a ½ mile for the kids and a march through the Sparks Marina.


Promoting fitness is the main goal of Run for Education. If you’re not a runner, don't worry! There are other activities to ensure everyone can be involved. Swing by the fitness fair, where you can play soccer, rock climb or even take your shot with the archery station.


All funds raised will go directly to the Kids in Motion program, which provides elementary schools Washoe County the help they need to make physical education and nutrition initiatives a reality. The run for Education has raised over $1.7 million over its 13 year history. This year, the Education Alliance Board aims to raise $200,000. Let’s make it happen!
