This year saw another super successful 4th of July race out in beautiful (hot) Pozo, California. Running Warehouse has sponsored this race for many years and this year we had a record turnout of our own employees lining up at the starting line or helping out at the event.
This year’s 5K raised several thousand dollars for Jack’s Helping Hand, a charity focused on providing resources for the unmet physical, mental, and medical needs of special children and young adults.
After the race, participants and their friends and family enjoyed a bountiful breakfast from the Pozo Saloon along with an exciting raffle offering over a hundred prizes including running shoes, shirts, shorts and hats. Almost everyone walked away a winner!
