The Longest Night Run/Walk with Fleet Feet Monterey

This event has already passed

Fleet Feet Monterey invites you to be part of a powerful community run/walk on the longest night of the year to honor grief, create togetherness, and celebrate resilience.

The Longest Night Run/Walk, on Thursday, December 21, 6pm-7:30pm, is a community event in which we come together to signal our support and solidarity with one another through times of grief, loss, waiting, and challenge. This is a donation-based event, with a suggested donation of $10, but there is no mandated cost. Please register here so we know how many people to expect.

The route will be an untimed out-and-back on the Monterey Bay Rec Trail, with participants choosing however far they would like to run or walk (1-mile, 3-mile, and 5-mile routes will be offered), and you'll be surrounded with the light of your running and walking partners and friends as you move through the Longest Night together. At the store, we will have interactive reflection stations, music, and chances to connect and socialize.

Too often, grief, waiting, and the times in between the moments of sunlight in our lives can be the loneliest experiences, but the Fleet Feet Monterey Running Community is committing to changing this, to making sure we all know that we are never alone and that we are wanted, needed, sacred, and celebrated. We are inviting everyone to wear reflective and lighted gear and will provide everyone with a battery-operated candle to carry on the run or walk. Proceeds will benefit the Center for Courageous Compassion.
