Where To Stay (at the Rally)
There is plenty of camping available at the Redwwod Run. Just follow the loop around and you will find all sorts of camping areas. You can choose from staying up top where it is quite and eithe ride down or take the shuttle to get to the main event areas and vendors. Or you can come down the hill and pick one of the many spots right in the heart of all the action. There is even riversice camping, however the riverside sites are a little rocky and you will need to park and walk you gear in. See the map below for camping locations.
Where To Stay (the night before)
Since the Redwood Run is a first come, first serve for camping spots, if a good location is important to you you will want to stay close by the night before so you can get up early and get in line. The two closest spots with lodging are Willits - to the South, and Garbeville - to the north. Both of these towns sell out allof there rooms pretty early each year, so if you want a room you need to book well in advance. We have stay at the Best Western in Willits which leaves you about an hour ride to the Run, and at the Garberville Motel which is about 15 minutes from the run. For those coming from the south and not to worried about getting real close the night before, we have stayed in Woodlands, CA which is about 3 hours from the run. But they have really reasonbly priced rooms and lots of places to eat.
Additional Information from the Official Kiwanis Original Redwood Run Site
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. The first club started in Detroit Michigan in 1915 as a business and professional men’s club. Over the years it has evolved into the service-focused groups of men and women that you see today. Today there are now over 7,700 Kiwanis clubs in 80 countries.
Kiwanis of the Redwoods was chartered in March of 1950 in Garberville, Ca. Our club has changed through the years and today we have 28 members and meet regularly at the Healy Senior Center in Redway with additional meetings ranging anywhere from Phillipsville to Piercy. We serve a large rural area and have members from Benbow to Rio Dell.
Our annual fundraisers and service projects include:
Toys for Tots
Benbow Fourth of July food booth
We also award several scholarships to the local high school graduates and maintain 6 school bus stops so the kids can stay out of the rain.
Our Toys for Tots Event began in 1991. Last year it was held on Sunday December 12th. The after parade party, bbq and raffle was held at the Riverwood Inn in Phillipsville. We collected donated toys and raised money to provide approximately 100 area children with toys for Christmas.
