The Rotary Club of Hollister and Mission 10 Race Committee invite you to kick off the new year by joining the 36th annual event on Jan. 26, 2019.
The San Juan Bautista-based event features the Half Marathon, now TAC distance certified, which takes you through the scenic and beautiful Anzar hills and past Anzar lake. The 10-Miler, 5K and 1-Mile Kids Fun Run will also be taking place, making this another fun-filled, all-ages event. Mission 10 partners with the CA Half and Full Marathon Series to put on the race. Find out here how to get your special series medal.
The Rotary Club of Hollister 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. In 2018 alone, the Rotary Club of Hollister gifted $25,000 in college scholarships to local students, according to a recent press release.
The Rotary Club of Hollister is growing this event while still maintaining the qualities appreciated by the runners who have made the Mission 10 run in San Juan Bautista a destination for years. Prizes will be awarded for the top theme teams in the 5k race. (Please keep costumes family friendly) With four different races, there is something for everyone.
