Touro University Hosts Annual Mare Island 5K Run

The 6th Annual Touro University California Mare Island 5K Run/Walk will take place on Sunday, November 18th. The event will run around the island with a start and finish in the lower main parking lot of Touro University.

The event is another example of Touro's commitment to contribute to the Vallejo community.  The race will support the Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD) and Fighting Back Partnership.  During the past four races, Touro University has had nearly 1,000 total event participants and donated more than $9,000 to the two organizations. This year, Touro's goal is to raise at least $10,000 to help fund valuable activities for the families and children involved with GVRD and Fighting Back. 

In addition to raising funds, Touro's other main objective is to promote health and fitness in the Vallejo community. The promotion of healthy lives and physical fitness is a shared goal of GVRD, Fighting Back Partnership and Touro University. 

The entry fee for the race is $35 and $15 for Touro students (with Student ID at check in). Children under 7 years of age participating are free. Additional donations are also accepted. The race location is 1310 Club Drive in Vallejo. Race will begin at 9 a.m. and will run rain or shine.  For application details click here
