Miles for Moms 5K on Mother’s Day Weekend to Raise Funds for Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital Foundation

Registration Information

Join us on Saturday, May 12th at Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital for the Miles for Moms 5K run walk. 


The Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital Foundation will host the Miles for Moms 5K run/walk on Saturday, May 12, 2018, to benefit the not-for-profit Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital. Participants are encouraged to walk with or in honor of mothers on Mother's Day weekend.

Beginning at the Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital parking lot at 351 S. Patterson Ave., the 5K route will travel south on Patterson and onto the Atascadero Creek Trail (Obern Trail). The route will turn back at Highway 217 and return to the hospital (see race route map). There will also be a children's fun run.

“We are very excited about kicking off our very first Miles for Moms event,” said Arie Dejong, Vice President of Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital and Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital. “We hope runners and walkers will come out to join us in honoring moms, as well as helping to support the hospital’s fundraising efforts.”

Prizes will be awarded to the top fundraiser, as well as first place prizes to female and male runners. All moms participating in the event will receive a special gift and various raffle prizes will be given away. A DJ will play music for the entire duration of the event.

Yardi is the presenting sponsor of Miles for Moms.
