On Saturday, April 27, 2019, the Los Alamos Business Coalition (lovelosalamos.com) will host its first “Lost Almost Running Festival”, a 5km, 10km and 25km run / walk family event, a collaborative effort from the Coalition, Luis Escobar of California Central Coast-based “All We Do Is Run” (allwedoisrun.com), and winemaker Sonja Magdevski of Casa Dumetz Wines (casadumetzwines.com).
The event day will begin at 8:00 AM with a 5km, 10km and 25km run or walk, starting and finishing at historic downtown Los Alamos’ Ferrini Park, located at the corner of Bell and Centennial Streets (directly across from 388 Bell Street, Los Alamos, CA 93440). The race route will take walkers and runners through the “Old West” town and into rustic Drum Canyon, on a 100 percent-paved course lined with ancient oaks, farm fields and cattle ranches. The 25km course turns around at Dierberg Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, returning race entrants to the finish at Ferrini Park. Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome, as are strollers and dogs on leash. Water stations will be positioned every one and a half miles.
Race entry fees ($25.00 / $35.00 / $55.00) will include a custom-printed, souvenir shirt for all participants and awards for top finishers. A raffle will also be available for entry, to include prizes from multiple local Los Alamos merchants, restaurants, wine tasting rooms and other businesses. The race will be followed by live music and children’s activities in Ferrini Park.
One special feature of the inaugural running event, is a “Beat The Winemaker” 25K Challenge: Los Alamos’ own woman winemaker, Sonja Magdevski of Casa Dumetz Wines, will run the 25km distance and will present a bottle of wine to the first twenty-four 25km runners who beat her to the finish line.
Another festive facet of the family-friendly Los Alamos event is the “Children’s Run and Fun in the Park”. Starting at 12:00 PM, kids of all ages will be able to participate in a Children’s Mile race and other kid’s activities. One hundred percent of the $15.00 registration fee for this portion of the event will benefit The Los Alamos Foundation Summer In The Park children’s programming.
