The Marine Mammal Center is proud to present the 22nd annual Run For The Seals race, Saturday, March 13, 2004 at Rodeo Beach in the Marin Headlands, Sausalito. The four-mile race begins at 9am and is open to runners, walkers, families with baby joggers and even dogs.

Proceeds benefit The Marine Mammal Center. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers in various age categories and all registrants will receive a commemorative Run For The Seals t-shirt.

“Run For The Seals is a fun, family-oriented event, that allows newcomers as well as people familiar with the work we do, to enjoy the beauty of the Marin Headlands, help support us in our goal of rescuing and treating elephant seals, sea lions and other marine life, and get a little exercise too, “said B. J. Griffin, Executive Director of The Center. “The work we do, and the resulting research and information we learn, helps all of us understand how diseases, global warming, and man-made threats affect marine mammals, which in turn, affect the health of our ocean, and us.”
