100 Mile Club® and All We Do Is Run Partner to Get Kids Moving
Back on the Ranch offering a kids 3-hour open run at Elks Unocal Event Center to help all kids reach their goals.
SANTA MARIA, CA — August 31, 2019. All We Do Is Run, a company creating simple, low-key trail running and camping events for runners by runners and 100 Mile Club®, a national nonprofit organization combatting childhood inactivity, today announced the 2019 Back on the Ranch Run, Camp, and Music Jam on October 4-6, 2019 at the Elks Unocal Events Center in Santa Maria, California.
Back on the Ranch Run, Camp, and Music Jam is a running festival like no other. Running options include a 48, 24, 12, 6, or 3-hour run on a flat, fast, 1-mile professionally chip-timed loop course. Participants are welcome to camp onsite for the duration of the event. The Local Music Jam, coordinated by Chad Hinkle, will showcase local bands and musicians throughout the day and night on Friday and Saturday. There will be food, campfires, camp activities for the entire family.
This year, Back on the Ranch has expanded its reach through partnership with 100 Mile Club and the addition of the “Kids 3-hour Run” on Saturday, October 5 at 9AM. This option is for kids of all ages, but was designed for kids looking to earn miles for the 100 Mile Club, an award-winning, non-profit, school-based running program where students work to log 100 miles (or more!) over the course of the school year. Any and all are welcome to join this special 3-hour run: 100 Mile Club Kids, parents, teachers, friends, advocates, or any running club looking for a non-competitive, supportive, and fully inclusive setting to further their joy of running and community.
Discounts codes are available for a limited time.
Participants at Back on the Ranch will have a unique opportunity to meet and run with two celebrity 100 Mile Club Kids: 13-year-old ultrarunning prodigy Sebastian Salsbury of Santa Barbara, the youngest known Western States qualifier in history, and Jurupa Valley’s own Madison McGarvey, age 10, who currently holds the national record for the most witnessed and documented 100 Mile Club miles (1,676) in the 27 year history of the organization.
“We are incredibly excited and honored to be able to partner with Back on the Ranch to help our kids discover the joy of trail running and earn miles toward their 100-mile goal”, said Kara Lubin, Founder and CEO of 100 Mile Club. “Here they will be able to run alongside runners of all ages and abilities and experience a real multi-day running event. Events like this are where the joy of running is born.”
“We are proud to partner with our friends at 100 Mile Club,” said Luis Escobar of All We Do is Run. “It is our goal to help our youth and community discover the transformative power of running. If we can do that and grow this event in the process, everyone benefits.”
Kandie Miller, a 100 Mile Club® Coach at Taylor Elementary in Santa Maria is excited to bring this event to her runners. “Being a 100 Mile Club Coach has been the most fun, rewarding, and worthwhile experience I’ve ever had at my child’s school. Daily, I witness kids of all ages and ability levels running together, encouraging each other, and building strong friendships. Back on the Ranch will offer these kids and families an amazing experience, celebrate their accomplishments, and support and grow this program in our schools and community. We can’t wait!”
Proceeds from Back on the Ranch Kids 3-Hour will help initiate, support, and sustain local 100 Mile Club school programs.
