The idea for the Annadel Half Marathon was inspired for the need to do something for the park that many of us love and cherish. Whether you are a mountain biker, hiker, runner or just a nature lover, Annadel State Park is special. Tough economic times are taking their toll on our State Parks. Many have been forced to close and the ones that stay open are being pushed to operate at significantly lower budgets. Annadel is no exception. The park desperately needs us so that it can continue to be the jewel of Santa Rosa. It is our time to rise up and support the park. Become a Half Marathon Finisher and a Philanthropist. Help save our beloved State Park Annadel.
You can also get involved even if you are not an athlete. You can donate any monetary amount to the park. A 5 mile hike is also an option if you want to get dirty but don't want to train for a 13.1 mile hilly run.
All proceeds raised from this event thru race registration and training is all being donated to the park thru the Valley of the Moon Natural History Association (VOMNHA) special account for Annadel.
Many thanks go out to Fleet Feet Sports Santa Rosa, Empire Runners, All of our sponsors, the Rangers at Annadel State Park, and you for contemplating participation.
