It would seem May is the month of walking for a cause. Perhaps the outpouring of consistently gorgeous weather has people feeling the need to head outdoors to exercise not only their bodies, but their sense of humanity as well.
Whether you’re walking or running for a cause, a cure, or just for fun the surrounding area is packed with exciting events and pretty places to move those legs and make a difference.
Menifee Half Marathon
Together with the City of Menifee, United Way presents the inaugural Menifee Half Marathon and 5K. As the presenting sponsor, the City of Menifee hopes to make this not only any annual event but also a defining signature offering each year.
In the months leading up to the marathon, Elevate Fitness has acted as the official training center helping runners stretch and run in proper form.
