Carmel Valley 5K registration continues, organizers looking for local bands

The Carmel Valley 5K race on Saturday, Dec. 8 is almost 50 percent full. The race supporting the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation begins at Carmel Del Mar School and runs along the scenic CVREP (Carmel Valley Restoration Enhancement Project) trail along SR-56. The event will also feature a one-mile fun run for any child kindergarten through sixth grade. All participants receive a t-shirt, medal and goodie bag.

Over 40 local businesses have signed on as sponsors and the post race expo is shaping up to be a big community event according to race planner Katie Wilsey.
