Mission 10 Race takes off Jan. 28, 2017

Registration is underway for the 34th Annual Mission 10 Race, sponsored by Hollister Rotary Club. All proceeds benefit local scholarships and charities

The Rotary Club of Hollister was one of the first Rotary Clubs established in California. The club has prided itself by providing vast support to the community since 1925 in the form of monetary contributions for student scholarships, local charitable programs, and providing a large base of volunteers that help support many programs around the community and worldwide.

The 34th Annual Mission 10 Race, which helps raise money for the Rotary Club of Hollister features a Half Marathon, 10-mile, 5K race and a 1 Mile Kids Fun Run.  All races will be professionally timed by South Valley Endurance.

The 5K has been popular with both competitive and casual runners. Walkers are also welcomed for the 5K. The 10-mile race has been TAC Certified, and will take participants on a route through the scenic farmland and hills outside of San Juan Bautista. Both the half marathon and 10-mile distance races provide a great training base for spring marathons.

The Rotary Club of Hollister is growing this event while still maintaining the qualities appreciated by the runners who have made the Mission 10 a destination for years. This year, we are very excited to be awarding the top 3 theme teams in the 5k race. (Please keep costumes family friendly) We are working on some other new and exciting features as well. Stay tuned. Get your new year off to a healthy start.
