For 43 years, Riverside’s Mission Inn has conducted the Mission Inn 5 and 10Kruns throughout the City of Riverside. Since the Mission Inn was not running one this year due to COVID-19, Golden Era’s Truth About Drugs decided to do a Virtual Run with all protocols and social distancing throughout Golden Era Productions Campus on Sunday Morning, November 1st.

The Runs is one of the Mission Inn’s main fundraising events for their Foundation. In the past few years, the Golden Era Productions’ Truth About Drugs Running Team has participated in the run with thousands of other runners. This year the Golden Era Team decided that, if the Mission Inn Run were not happening in Riverside, then they would take part in it at the Golden Era Productions location in The San Jacinto Valley. The 5k, 10K and half-marathon running course spreads throughout the 525-acre campus with protocols kept in place, passing “The Castle film Studios,” winding around all the sports facilities, which include the basketball course and volleyball courts, a 3.3 – acre lake and a running course with exercise stations.

The run got off to a patriotic start with the lovely voice of Linda Greilich belting out our National Anthem. Twenty-two runners participated, having already registered to support the Mission Inn Foundation.

One enthusiastic racer, Ben Sproule, commented, “I usually participate in all the local runs, so it was great to get our team together again to do this run. I truly miss the camaraderie with other fellow 5K runners that I have met throughout the years.

Golden Era’s Truth About Drugs Program is the largest international and most comprehensive non-governmental drug educational and prevention programs of its kind. Overseen by the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, the program provides effective drug educational resources videos, booklets and other teaching aids (in 18 different languages) that grab the attention of young people and leave them informed. The documentaries for this program were produced by Golden Era Productions. All of the materials are and downloadable. For more detailed information, go to drugfreeworld.org. Just sayin’.
