The Walnut Run was started by a group of local Walnut Creek residents who share a love for health and community. They created an event where the net proceeds are donated back to local participating Walnut Creek schools, as well as the Walnut Creek Education Foundation and P.E.A.K. Education Foundation.
The money is distributed each year by the percentage of affiliated participants from each school. The more participants from a school or foundation will generate a larger percentage of funds handed to them in the end. You can always select a school or education foundation to represent if you are not associated with one.
This year, The Walnut Run will be produced through Monumental Racing LLC. The company was formed with a vision to promote Health & Fitness all the while bringing local communities together. To learn more about the Monumental Racing LLC, please visit their website.
