The Finkle Team

at Monterey Coast Realty

“East Garrison, with trails you can run to this race, is one of the best places in the world for trail runners to call home. Walk out your door and say hello to a backyard of 95 miles of trails.”

~ Maria Finkle ~


“Maria Finkle sold me my house in East Garrison in 2018. She’s my neighbor and friend. I asked her to support this race and she loved the idea. Please reach out to her if you love running in Fort Ord and think you might want to move to East Garrison. Here is her number 831.277.6728.”

~ Ryan Commons, Race Director ~

The Treadmill

“Thank you to The Treadmill for supporting Race the Commons and our efforts to give to local nonprofits. Runners, please visit The Treadmill or their website for gear and shoes. For anyone that doesn't know about how much The Treadmill does for our community, I can personally say that The Treadmill was the first business I contacted when I started Race the Commons because I love and am inspired by how much I've seen The Treadmill generously serve our community since before I could walk."
