The Run for Education is hosted by the Education Alliance Board and coordinated by a county-wide group of educators, volunteers, business representatives, community leaders, and government officials. This annual family and community event raises funds for students, schools, and programs in Washoe County focused on physical and academic fitness. The Run brings together families, community, business, and education for a day of fun, physical activities with 100% of sponsorship dollars going DIRECTLY back to schools and students through the Education Alliance. Located in front of Scheels at the Outlets at Sparks Marina, join us for the competitive 5k/10k races, the Sparks Marina March, an untimed walk/run around the Marina, or the 1/2 Mile Fun Run for little runners. In addition to the running events, the Fitness Fair is for kids and families to enjoy with activity-themed stations, such as bike rodeo, soccer, climbing, golf, basketball, archery, gymnastics, and many more.
