About the El Segundo Run for Education:
The El Segundo Council of PTAs, in partnership with Big 5 Sporting Goods, is proud to present the 27th annual El Segundo Run for Education benefiting El Segundo Public Schools.
As one of the more unique courses in Southern California, the Run for Education features a moderate coastal climate and a tour of El Segundo neighborhoods and schools. The 5K Run/Walk is an easy-to-moderate hill course through local neighborhoods while the 10K Run offers up a 2nd loop with a slight modification. The Kids Fun Run is split into a 1K and 1/2K event. The 1K Kids Run is for children ages 6-10 years old while the 1/2K Kids Run is for children 5 and under.
