The 26th annual Red Nose Run is scheduled for Friday, December 15, 2017, along the beaches of Del Mar. This holiday tradition, sponsored by The Low & Slow Running Club of Del Mar, will benefit Fresh Start Surgical Gifts and the Semper Fi Fund. Stop by the 91X tent from 1pm to 3pm for your chance to win prizes!
The Red Nose Run is a 3K/5K fun run/walk that starts and finishes at the beach in front of The Poseidon Restaurant, near the lifeguard station. Check-in begins at 1:00pm and the Red Nose Run starts at 2:00pm, rain or shine. Participants are invited to return to The Poseidon for after-run festivities, including complimentary hors d’oeuvres provided by The Poseidon, giveaways and holiday cheer. Silent and live auction items this year will include travel, food and entertainment gift certificates. Costumes and dogs are all welcome and prizes will be awarded.
The fee to participate in the Red Nose Run is a $35 (early bird) minimum donation, which includes a commemorative signature Red Nose Run item. Advance registration is encouraged, but day-of registration is available. The Red Nose Run has raised more than $300,000 for charities over the years.
Fresh Start Surgical Gifts provides reconstructive surgery free to needy children who have physical deformities caused by birth defects, disease, accidents or abuse. The Semper Fi Fund provides financial grants and other assistance to veterans and the families of those who have been injured while serving our nation.
