Picnicking in Portola Valley like it's 2013

Running, walking and everything in between will be fine in the Zots to Tots race on Saturday, June 8, at the Portola Valley Town Picnic.

As for bikes, scooters, skates, skateboards and other wheeled vehicles, those will be fine, too, but for the last time. For "safety reasons," future picnics will have foot races only, unless you're 4 or under and accompanied by an adult, according to a statement from the town.

The race begins at 10 a.m. at the Alpine Inn (formerly Rossotti's) at 3915 Alpine Road, with registration beginning at 9 a.m. The fee is $15 for a racing bib, good for a T-shirt at the end of the race at Town Center at 765 Portola Road, where the picnic will begin at 10:30 a.m. There will be water available along the 2.5-mile course.

Live music begins at noon, bingo at 2 p.m., with local beer and wine tastings in between at 1 p.m. The picnic officially ends at 3 p.m.
