Run in the Redwoods 5k.  Held at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. 

The purpose of Run in the Redwoods 5k is to raise funds for Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC), a local nonprofit organization that supports educational and interpretive activities and oversees park stores throughout Redwood National and State Parks. All proceeds benefit parks and public lands on California’s far north coast.
