SDC Footrace and Festival

A 5K run/walk and an advanced 10K run will take place on Saturday, May 18, starting at the Sonoma Developmental Center.

The 10K is a challenging run through stunning scenery, both on- and off-road, passing lakes and woods in the hills above Sonoma. For a less challenging run or walk, the 5K course also winds through the beautiful grounds of the center on mostly level pavement. Both races start at 9 a.m.

The after-race Festival, open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., features some of the county’s best wine and beer and is undoubtedly the most economical tasting event in Sonoma. The family-friendly festival also features a car show, food vendors, carnival games and attractions, a kids’ fun run, and live music.

Registration fees vary by age, from $20 to $30, with $5 off for early purchase. Anyone interested in the footrace, the festival, or to volunteer at the event should contact Becky Zyskowski at 938-6713. See the website at
