Panerathon.  It’s our favorite Sunday of the Food Bank year.  Over 800 people woke up at the crack of dawn and gathered this year in an effort to fight hunger and feed their bodies with exercise and delicious food from our friends at Panera Bread.  For the 7th year in a row, we were blessed with beautiful weather and, despite the terrible flooding, the Westminster path system was in great condition for our participants.  Job well done City of Westminster!  Runners and walkers (and their 4 legged friends) were able to register and visit the expo booths with ease before they lined up at the Start line.  For the third year, a 5K and 10K were offered, as well as a Fun Run for our little ones.  It was awesome to see a lot of our small runners participate in both the Fun Run and the 5K with their families.  

Over 50,000 meals will be provided as a result of this year’s Panerathon!  This event truly is an awesome experience for serious runners, families, pets and those just looking to get in some fun weekend exercise.  We’re so grateful to our fantastic partners at Panera Bread and to all those who volunteered and participated in the 2013 Panerathon.   Let’s gather 1,000 friends in 2014!  Can’t wait to see you on the course again next year!
