Not all superheroes wear capes! Come out this Father's Day for our Annual Superhero Run, where we honor all of the heroes we encounter every day, including our police officers, firefighters, teachers, parents, service members, and more!

Where: Aptos Village Park in Aptos, CA

When: Sunday, June 18th, 2017. The 5K, and 10K, races start promptly at 8:30 am! Free Kids 1K Race starts at 8:00 am. Due to storm damage, slides and fallen trees in Nisene Marks Park, the State Park Rangers have asked us to cancel the 15k which runs beyond the Porter Parking Area gate. Emergency personnel cannot access the park beyond the Porter Parking Area Gate. For the safety of all runners and first responders, we will run the 5K and the 10K only. Thank you for your understanding. 

Cost: $35 for the 5K, $45 for the 10K

***Costumes are not required*** but there will be plenty of superheros and villains out there, so get creative and have fun! There will be an award for most creative Superhero costume. 

The Course

The Superhero Run features an out-and-back course in the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park, a local gem known for its towering redwoods and beautifully maintained trails. All runs start under the oaks of Aptos Village Park, climb a short hill, and then head into the State Park, where the heat of summer will disappear in the dense patches of trees. All distances take place entirely on paved and dirt fire road.
