From The Hometown News:
This year’s Jet to Jetty will mark the 29th year of the 5K/10K run/walk for mental health. The Drollinger Family Charitable Foundation (DFCF) is once again the name sponsor for the event that benefits Airport Marina Counseling Service (AMCS). The Jet to Jetty will take place on Dockweiler Beach in Playa del Rey on Saturday, August 24. Attendees can participate in a 5K walk/run; a 10K run; a family bike ride and/or the “Kid’s Fun Run.” This year, for the first time, there will be a USA Track and Field Road Mile challenge run.
“This year’s edition of the Jet to Jetty has something for everyone and we encourage broad community participation,” said DFCF’s President Karen Dial. “It’s a great community event that supports a critical community service.”
Before and after the event, there will be an expo featuring vendors offering healthy foods and drinks, chiropractic services and running gear, as well as free after-race snacks. Teams are encouraged to have fun and dress in costumes or themes. Prizes will be awarded for fastest team, team with the most participants and best individual costume. All participants receive a race t-shirt, and awards are given to the top three finishers in 15 age categories as well as to the overall first place male and female finisher in both the 5K and 10K.
