For a training run or goal race of 10k*, 5k*, 5k family walk, kids 1k race, or the 20k "Relay for Jack!", you're in it for a great cause: funding research for pediatric brain cancer. Did you know that this is one of the least-funded areas of research, even though it's the leading cause of death in kids with cancer? You can be confident in knowing that proceeds from this event support cutting edge research for pediatric brain cancer with Jack's Angels. Visit our event page at www.runtherocks.info, or for more information about Jack's Angels, visit jacksangels.org.
Can't make it? No problem! Virtual Relay for Jack registration is open through 4/30 and you can run/walk this from anywhere in the world! We ask that you participate sometime between April 30 and May 17 in support of DIPG Awareness Day!
Vasquez Rocks County Park is easy to get to, and is at the heart of rural suburban Los Angeles, nestled in gorgeous countryside with friendly folks in a real, small-town setting. From the I-5 North, take the 14 North through Newhall and exit Agua Dulce Canyon Rd. The park is about 4 miles west from that point, and about .4 mi from the Stop sign on the right. From highway 14 South, take Escondido Canyon Rd. (Right) toward Agua Dulce, and the Park will be about a mile down on your left before the stop sign. If you go west at the stop sign, you'll enter the quaint "downtown" Agua Dulce.
