Salmon Run

Patagonia, a Ventura based clothing firm, are well known for their environmental concern and often feature environmental campaigns in their catalogs and advertisements. Each year they sponsor a 5k run/3k walk in Ventura as a benefit for a local conservation type organization. This year the beneficiary is the Friends of the Santa Clara River. The run is on Sunday November 9th. For a $25 entry fee you get a cool Patagonia t-shirt, a fun run up the Ventura River, and an auction and raffle afterwards. I knew some people who made out like bandits last year, winning their age group for further goodies and winning raffle prizes. Sadly I'm neither fast enough nor lucky enough but I still had a good time and will be back this year. Entry details are here.
