COUGAR COLOR RUN 2019 ~ Fun Time for the Whole Family!

The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which hundreds of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer It’s a unique colorful race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality.

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

1. Wear white at the starting line

2. Finish plastered in color!

Registration opens at 9 am. Check in, pick up your t-shirt and color pack. The start-line window will open at 10:00 AM with waves going every few minutes until about 10:45AM! Make sure you plan your day with plenty of time. At the Color Run, the start line is its own pre-race party with music, dancing, and warm-up stretching!

New San Mateo County Dog Fines

Dog Ordinance Changes Approved

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2018 from San Mateo County Parks Department

The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors took the first step in amending County ordinance sections governing dog recreation to align with current dog management practices in designated San Mateo County Parks.

The amendments reflect recommendations by Parks staff and the work of the Dog Management Committee along with changes made by the supervisors during the Oct. 23, 2018 Board meeting. The San Mateo County Parks and Recreation Commission appointed the Dog Management Committee as part of its efforts to update and clarify dog management policies and meet the Department’s mission to protect natural resources while providing recreational opportunities for all to enjoy.

During the first six months of ordinance enactment, Park rangers will issue warnings for non-compliance.  Following that period, citations will carry fines $100 for the first offense, $200 for the second, and $500 for each subsequent offense during a 12-month period.

Highway 1 Love
Be Cool and Buy Your Hwy 1 Love T-shirt or Hoodie Today

Owner/Founder Mark Weisbarth is from Half Moon Bay California. He has a reputation in his small hometown for representing the Coastside in a positive light. As a teenager in the late 90’s, he started making hip hop music, writing songs about his love for the coast. This kickstarted a Coastside Hip Hop movement that shed light on a underrated scene of local talent. In the early 2000’s he started an independent record label to help local hip hop artists promote their music. That’s when he made his first t-shirt line under the name of his label, Knew West.
