Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in California and the governor’s enactment of new restrictions on non-essential travel and out of home activities, the Rio Grill Resolution Run planned for January 1, 2021 has been postponed. Out of an abundance of caution, the organizers have determined that the safest course of action is to return in 2021 after COVID compliance supports.
Welcome to the 31st Presentation of
Rio Grill's Resolution Run - But the Very First One Held Virtually!
Sign Up To Run Today and Support CASA of Monterey County
Traditionally our race starts at the Rio Grill in the Crossroads Shopping Village, Highway 1 at Rio Road in Carmel, California and features an absolutely gorgeous course that includes trails, roads and stunning water vistas along the way. This year we want you to make your own virtual race -- whatever way fits your groove!
Rio Grill’s Resolution Run is a tradition and this year will benefit CASA of Monterey County. For 25 years, CASA of Monterey County has provided an essential and unique service as the only court-appointed child advocate program addressing an acute problem – the needs of neglected or abused children who have been placed in foster care. CASA of Monterey County has been on the frontlines for these children through our Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program, and our mission is to recruit, train, and support community volunteers to represent the best interests and needs of these vulnerable children, while pursuing a safe and permanent home for them. CASA serves children between the ages of birth to 21 years, and is beginning to serve juvenile justice youth as participants in a 2-year pilot program.
Looking to stay motivated, stay socially distanced, but still participate in active and healthy events? Then this race is for you!
