Presented by The Low & Slow Running Club of Del Mar
The Red Nose Run was started by the Low and Slow Running Club of Del Mar, which consisted of runners of various ages and running abilities, who continue to get together on Saturday mornings.
In 1992, the Run initially started benefitting a single charity, Fresh Start Surgical Gifts , which remains one of the two charities the Run benefits to this day.
Later a second charity, Semper Fi Fund ,was added to benefit from the Run.
Over the years, the number of runners and the amount of contributions has grown from 35-40 runners and a few thousand dollars to over 200 runners and $21,000 by 2013. The Run continues to benefit these two deserving non-profit 501 (c ) (3) charities. During the past 22 years, Red Nose Run has raised over $217,000 for these two important causes.
There is NO OVERHEAD cost, other than the Run itself. After the expense of the Run, ALL funds are distributed to the two charities. The Run raises money for these charities in two ways: an entry fee to participate in the Run and solicitation of cash/non cash contributions directly from businesses. The non-cash contributions (golf clubs, vacations, tours, etc.) are auctioned immediately after the Run and account for a significant amount of the funds raised for the Charities.

After the Run, everyone meets in the Poseidon Restaurant (a perpetual sponsor of the Run) for refreshments, followed by door prizes, recognition of 5K race winners, raffle, live auction and presentation of funds to both charities
It continues to be a very satisfying and enjoyable experience, especially during the season of giving.
