Pleasanton Run for Education
It’s time to run, walk or push your stroller to www.ppierun.com to sign up for Pleasanton’s premier family-focused fitness fundraiser!

The 3rd Annual Pleasanton Run for Education, benefitting the Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation (PPIE), takes place Sunday April 12, 2015. ClubSport Pleasanton returns as Title Sponsor, and all races begin and end at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton.

This year’s race offers two new distances to challenge everyone- from the casual walker, to the novice runner, to those training for their first marathon. In lieu of a half marathon option, the 3rd Annual Run for Education offers three race distances: 5K, 10K and 15K. The popular Kids’ Challenge for ages 12 & under has also expanded and will offer two distances: 1/2K and 1K.

“Feedback from participants, including seasoned runners, indicated an interest in training-focused distances,” said Run Director Kelly French. “It can be difficult to locate intermediate distance races. We wanted to offer options for walkers and runners who want to stretch beyond their comfort zone but don’t feel ready for a half marathon.”

French said the new distances align with their goal of hosting a family-focused, inclusive event. Participants can walk or run the 5K or the 10K – or better yet, add them together for the 15K = three opportunities to run farther and faster!

PPIE welcomes back A Change of Pace Foundation to handle registration and timing, and Ready Go! Events joins the effort this year as the official race management company.

Last year, the event raised over $80,000 in net proceeds, all of which benefitted the Pleasanton schools. This year, the committee’s goal is to raise $100,000.

“With 2,700 entrants last year, participation grew by 50%,” explained French. “We are hoping the momentum continues to help us reach our $100,000 goal.”

As Pleasanton's premier family-focused fitness fundraiser, the Pleasanton Run for Education relies on generous sponsors, volunteers and participants! To register to run, volunteer or sponsor the event, please visit www.ppierun.com . To learn more about PPIE, please visit www.ppie.org .

The outrageous antics and expert juggling of Mark Nizer have been described as “nothing less than brilliant,” his unique approach is delivered with an unprecedented live 3D twist. Since winning the International Juggling Championships, his amazing feats, whether with laser beams, bowling balls, or a burning propane tank, have put him in venues from comedy clubs to Lincoln Center, as well as on television and major cruise lines.

Arlo Guthrie
Born with a guitar in one hand and a harmonica in the other, Arlo Guthrie’s timeless stories and songs carry on the legacy of his father, songwriter Woody Guthrie. Arlo was performing in public by age 13 and was soon involved in the music that shaped the 1960s. His ground breaking hit Alice’s Restaurant helped foster the social consciousness and activism of that era and remains relevant today. With his natural gifts as a storyteller, Guthrie connects anecdotes and music with an engaging and heartfelt humor that has enticed fans for generations.

John Mather “The Story of our Universe: Beginning to End (and how we’re finding out)” - Rae Dorough Speaker Series
Nobel Laureate and Astrophysicist, Dr. John Mather will explore the whole history of our universe, beginning with cosmic inflation and a series of cosmic instabilities, leading to the formation of stars, galaxies and planets. He will discuss how the solar system made it possible for life to exist on Earth and show how the James Webb Space Telescope, being built for launch in 2018, will tell us more about our history. An even bigger telescope may show us signs of life on planets of other stars—Mather will speculate on how we, or our robotic progeny, could reach those planets.

Fiddler on the Roof
Winner of 10 Tony Awards in 1965 and still touching audiences worldwide today with its humor, warmth and honesty, 'Fiddler on the Roof' is a musical theatre tradition! Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with tradition in the face of changing social mores and growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, this universal theme cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.

Cinderella Classic and Challenge Bike ride.
This unique bicycle tour for women of all ages and abilities winds through Amador, Livermore, Diablo, and San Ramon Valleys. This metric century (100k/65 miles) is mostly flat with a few moderate hills. From the start at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, the ride circles south through Pleasanton, out through the vineyards of Livermore, then north and along the base of beautiful Mt. Diablo to Danville, where it turns south and winds back to the Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. Charming Princes will be at three rest/food stops along the way, with a cold lunch at the second. Our SAG service patrols the entire route to provide rider assistance if required. A Cinderella Classic ride patch is awarded to every rider. Leave your Prince Charming at home and enjoy a special day!

The Cinderella Classic & Challenge is a 65/95-mile recreational bicycle ride (not a race) for women & girls only. Males do not ride Cinderella they do the organization, support, rest stops and SAGs for the Cinderellas.

The Cinderella Challenge
The Challenge route is for experienced and extra-conditioned riders only. It includes an additional 23 miles and almost 2,000 feet of climbing. At mile 25 you turn east and climb Patterson Pass, then enjoy a six-mile steep rapid descent into the valley. Making a loop, you return via Midway, Altamont Pass, Carroll, North Flynn and the great descent of South Flynn, after which you rejoin the Classic route ten miles before the lunch stop. Riders will be monitored onto the route and given a Challenge route sheet. There will be a water/refreshment/Challenge award stop at Midway and Grant Line.
Please, no Ride-a-longs.

Remnants of the Past Vintage Show
Named 'Best Flea Market in America' by Romantic Homes, Flea Market Decor, and Romantic Country magazines, the bi-annual Remnants of the Past Antique & Vintage Show attracts over 65 of the country's finest purveyors of vintage, handmade and antique items. Remnants of the past features an eclectic collection of one-of-a-kind finds including French farmhouse design, country chic, European antiques, and creatively repurposed goods. Originally held in San Luis Obispo, California, where the internationally renowned 'shabby chic' designer Ashwell discovered Remnants of the Past, the show has continuously attracted exponentially greater number of visitors.

Dark Side of the Moon Tribute
Fans have obsessed for years over Pink Floyd’s groundbreaking album with its radical integration of music and sounds, so it is no surprise Classic Albums Live chose it as their first rock masterpiece to recreate—note-for-note, cut-for-cut. With faithful attention to detail, from the clock intro that opens Time, to the haunting vocals of Great Gig in the Sky and the unmistakable drumbeat of Money, every element, no matter how small, is replicated live on stage. A true rock immersion experience, this show must be seen and heard to be believed.
