Kids do the darnedest things! Talking about doing the right thing, the kids of Monarch School ran 200 miles for San Diego's homeless youth.
The local community members aim to raise money for Monarch School, a K-12 public school for children impacted by homelessness, by running 200 miles in the Annual Ragnar Relay So Cal Race. Starting Friday, April 20, and going through Saturday, April 21, participating team members will spend nearly two full days taking turns speeding down the coast as part of the “200 Miles for Monarch” fundraiser. The race starts just south of Los Angeles in Huntington Beach and goes through Anaheim, Carlsbad, Del Mar and La Jolla, finally wrapping up on Coronado Island in San Diego.

Making testing personal limits a team sport, Ragnar is the largest overnight running relay series in the United States. Participating teams consist of 12 people who each run three legs varying in difficulty and distance, from 3 to 8 miles. Or, for elite runners, teams of six people who each run six legs.

For the So Cal race, participants run across 200 miles of California’s most scenic terrain over two days and one night. Nine teams aim to raise $50,000 for Monarch School, as follows.
