2017 Run For Wellness


In 2017 Jeff Roznowski, 25 year past Race Director for the Blarney Run, and Tom Kreinbring, AlignLife's Community Outreach Director, thought a neighborhood 5K through Pasadena would help in promoting the mission of MidTown Tosa Business Association. Through Jeff's help, Tom has taken the post of Race Director!


There was already a MidTown Tosa Festival and it became clear that the run should be coupled with the festival which ends MidTown Tosa week. MidTown Madness was born through the festival's committee. Further, it became a run for wellness as wellness is one of the three foci of our association.


As more than 20% of the businesses within MidTown are health services related, the sponsors and director are all within this demographic. Thanks so much for all of the time, treasure and talent that has been given to make this event possible!

We love our neighborhood and the immediate, surrounding districts. With this in mind, it was easy to choose the Tosa Public Library Foundation as the organization to receive proceeds from the run.

Further, through thoughtful donations, each age bracket winner and the overall winners will receive a coupon for a FREE pair of Tifosi race glassess valued at $79 or less. Thanks to Design Vision Optical! The overall winners will also receive a gift card for Rodiez Running Store AND RoadID!

When we combine our forces, everyone comes out on top!

What about the kids?!

A neighborhood run will not be complete without an event for the kids! We selected a 600 meter dash around McKinley elementary school's block to make sure everyone could participate. Reserved for 10 and unders, please!
