Human Race

The Human Race is a nationwide community fundraising event for nonprofit organizations and is the largest collaborative fundraising event in Sonoma County as well as the largest Human Race in the nation! The Sonoma County Race features a 3K and 10K run and walk through Howarth and Spring Lake Parks, rain or shine.

Organizations and businesses recruit walkers/runners/donation-gatherers to raise funds. Funds can be raised for any nonprofit organization, school or church. The run and walk is open to all. The Human Race is a proven fundraiser that has been successful for Sonoma County nonprofits for 35 years and continues to grow. The Volunteer Center provides marketing, publicity, materials, and experienced assistance. Nonprofits and businesses provide the people power. In 2016 there were over 8,000 participants with almost $600,000 raised to date for over 225 nonprofits who will benefit from the event. The first Human Race in 1981 raised $1,800.

This event is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors.
