Join us for the 21st Annual Marianne Talley Memorial Fun Runs; true cross country courses through the picturesque scenery at Talley Vineyards along dirt roads and trails through the vineyards. These events are perfect for all runners and active families! For those running the 5K, a commemorative "I Beat the Vintner" T-Shirt will be awarded to those who finish before Vintner Brian Talley.
Timing chips are provided for all participants; aid stations on the course; water, OKUI Strawberries and HOUSE of BREAD treats provided at the finish. Post-race raffle for all participants. Award ceremony for overall and age group winners immediately following the Youth Mile.
Marianne was an avid athlete who competed in swimming, running, cycling, and triathlon events most of her life. She was a member of the SLO Roadrunners Running and Triathlon Club, and completed the Ironman Triathlon in 1992. She died suddenly on May 18, 1993 at the age of 25, from complications associated with heart arrhythmia.
The Marianne Talley Foundation is a nonprofit organization that was established in 1993 to fund scholarships for college-bound athletes from Arroyo Grande High School. The Fun Run was established as an annual fund-raising event in 1994 and is dedicated to honoring Marianne's memory and to her commitment to health, fitness and exercise.
