More than 200 runners — and walkers — participated in Sunday’s fourth annual Goleta Education Foundation 4-Miler Run/Walk, a fundraiser benefiting the music and physical education programs in the Goleta Union School District. Scores of kids raced off in the one-mile fun run.

Under mostly gray skies, Rusty Snow of Santa Barbara won the overall race with a time of 21:03 minutes and Monica DeVreese, also of Santa Barbara, finished first on the women’s side with a time of 25:20. The race started at Berkeley Road and North Fairview Avenue, looped around Lake Los Carneros and finished in the parking lot of the GUSD office, 401 N. Fairview Ave. The event was an official Santa Barbara Athletic Association Grand Prix Race. Click here for complete race results on Active.com.

Entertainment was provided by the Goleta Valley Junior High Jazz Band, directed by music instructor Jeff Peterson. Sponsors included Noozhawk, Community West Bank, Kidz Art Santa Barbara, The Learningden Preschool, Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, Santa Barbara Symphony and sbparent.com.

Jon Zuber was the winner of Noozhawk’s drawing for a Fresco Cafe Five Points gift certificate.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
