The best part is we do this together AND we have a great time doing it. This event is successful because it is a community driven effort. Non-profits, schools, community groups, local businesses, community leaders, friends and neighbors-- We're all in and you should be too!

What is the Human Race?

 The Human Race is a nationwide community fundraising event for nonprofit organizations, schools, and faith based organizations. The Santa Cruz County Race features a 6 week fundraising campaign that culminates in a five-mile walk and fun run along beautiful West Cliff Drive, a complimentary breakfast, music along the course, a costume contest, a BBQ lunch and family friendly festivities at the finish line.

Each year more than 120 teams reach out to the community to ask for support for the causes they champion. Together we rally more than 10,000 donors and 1500 participants on the day of the race.

Why Join the Human Race?

A fun, fast & easy way to raise money for your nonprofit, school, or agency.

It is the largest collaborative community fundraiser in Santa Cruz County, having raised over $1 million for community groups in the past 5 years. Participating nonprofits, schools, and churches raise funds to help meet the educational, environmental, social, and creative needs of our community.

With over 35 years of experience, we’ve taken the guesswork out of fundraising and we prepared to help you get to your fundraising finish line.
