About 3,000 runners and walkers are expected to turn out tonight, Sept. 20, for the 29th annual Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run & Walk in the Baylands.

Race-night registration for the 5k walk, 5k run and a 10k run will start at 6 p.m. at the Baylands Athletic Center, 1900 Geng Road (at Embarcadero Road), Palo Alto. The fee is $40 per adult; $30 for youth; T-shirts will be available only while supplies last.

The 5k walk will start at 7 p.m.; the 10k run will begin at 8:15 p.m.; and the 5k run will start at 8:45 p.m.

Carpooling to the Moonlight Run is strongly advised, as there are a record number of entries this year.

Parking will be available at seven commercial properties along East Bayshore and Embarcadero: Embarcadero Place, 2225 E. Bayshore; Embarcadero Business Center, 2479 E. Bayshore; Stanford Credit Union, 1860 Embarcadero Way; Palo Alto Golf Course, 1875 Embarcadero; Merrill Corp., 1731 Embarcadero; Jones Day, 1755 Embarcadero; and Sullivan & Cromwell, 1870 Embarcadero.

Parking will be prohibited on most of Embarcadero from East Bayshore to the Palo Alto Golf Course.

In addition to the races, the Moonlight Run & Walk will feature music by a DJ, vendor booths, a kids' course, a climbing wall, chiropractic services and pre-race warm-ups.

The proceeds from the event benefit the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund, which this year provided nearly $400,000 in grants to local nonprofit organizations supporting kids, seniors, families and more.
