Race for the Arts is a nonprofit organization that raises funds and awareness and increases audiences for California nonprofit performing, literary, cultural, and visual arts organizations, along with school music, literary, drama, and art programs.
Race for the Arts 2013
Race for the Arts, in historic William Land Park, is more than a run - it's an experience! (The 5k is B-tagged for those who want to have their run timed.) Come for the Run and stay for the Arts Festival! There's plenty to see, hear, and do. Enjoy live entertainment, costumed characters, and a post-run party, and experience the arts first hand at the interactive booths.
100% of your pledges benefit your designated group. This is your opportunity to make a difference for your favorite arts organization and/or school program. The donation program is optional and supplemental to the event entry fee.
Race for the Arts is proud to announce its new Race Director, Capital Road Race Management. And we're extremely thankful to Wayne Thiebaud for his contribution to this year's artwork.
