The Wharf to Wharf nonprofit corporation, which annually puts on the race by the same name in Santa Cruz in July, announced the recipients of $388,394 this week, with Soquel High and Aptos High garnering the largest chunks of money. They received $110,000 and $60,000, respectively, for track resurfacing.

The Wharf to Wharf is a 6-mile footrace from near the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf to the Capitola Wharf. This year marked it’s 40th anniversary.
