Salmon Run 2016

Salmon Run 5K
23 Years in the Making
Sunday, November 6, 2016
Patagonia HQ, Ventura, California

The 23rd Annual Salmon Run, a 5K run/race was held at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 6, 2016. The Salmon Run is a benefit event for environmental nonprofits. Over the years, it has raised more than $150,000 to support groups working on important issues right in our own backyard. We hope you can join us this year for a morning of fun and community!
This year's beneficiary is Once Upon a Watershed, an environmental nonprofit that provides watershed education, restoration and stewardship experiences to grade school students in the Ventura River Watershed.

 As always, Surfrider/Matilija Coalition, Friends of the Ventura River, and all of our partner organizations had a table to spread the word on all the good work happening in the community!

Our new "scissors stickers" were a big hit, and we handed out over 300 of them before we ran out!
