Record Participation for the 2010 Moraga Fourth of July Race

Despite the warmer than usual start time temperature, 386 runners of all ages took to the two and five miles courses in what has become a Moraga tradition.
Building on this tradition, chip timing (an electronic detection system that accounts for each of the participating athletes independently and provided by Aaron Ford of Ford Timing) was added for the first time this year.
Family members too young for these races chased rabbits (pace setters) from the Campolindo High School Girls Cross Country Team around either a 400m and 800m course.
Most racers retired to the Moraga Commons where they turned in their bib numbers for a free pancake breakfast (provided by the Moraga Youth Involvement Committee) then joined in community sponsored holiday festivities.
All proceeds from this event go to the Cross Country and Track and Field Programs at Campolindo High School.
