Rio Grill's Resolution Run 2021 Postponed


Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in California and the governor’s enactment of new restrictions on non-essential travel and out of home activities, the Rio Grill Resolution Run planned for January 1, 2021 has been postponed. Out of an abundance of caution, the organizers have determined that the safest course of action is to return in 2021 after COVID compliance supports.


Traditionally our race starts at the Rio Grill in the Crossroads Shopping Village, Highway 1 at Rio Road in Carmel, California and features an absolutely gorgeous course that includes trails, roads and stunning water vistas along the way. This year we want you to make your own virtual race — whatever way fits your groove!
Rio Grill’s Resolution Run is a tradition and this year will benefit CASA of Monterey County. For 25 years, CASA of Monterey County has provided an essential and unique service as the only court-appointed child advocate program addressing an acute problem – the needs of neglected or abused children who have been placed in foster care. CASA of Monterey County has been on the frontlines for these children through our Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program, and our mission is to recruit, train, and support community volunteers to represent the best interests and needs of these vulnerable children, while pursuing a safe and permanent home for them. CASA serves children between the ages of birth to 21 years, and is beginning to serve juvenile justice youth as participants in a 2-year pilot program.
Looking to stay motivated, stay socially distanced, but still participate in active and healthy events? Then this race is for you!
The Rio Grill Virtual 5K/10K is all about Running (or Walking) and spending time with your family and friends. Unfortunately, we can’t congregate in groups currently, but we can still come together as a virtual community and enjoy fun, fitness, charity, social sharing, and our wonderful pets!
Walkers, strollers, dogs on a leash, cats on a leash, anything on a leash are welcome at this year’s virtual race. You pick the course of your choosing. Dress up, and have fun!!! Your race starts and ends at a spot of your choosing.

Pick it up fundraiser is extended!

Due to the fires and the needs in our community — we are extending the Pay It Forward to support The Food Bank for Monterey County through December 2020. Our new goal is to raise $50,000 by this time! 10% of all proceeds from takeout orders will be donated to the Food Bank. Help us get there!


Montrio Bistro, Tarpy’s Roadhouse, and Rio Grill have launched a new fundraiser in support of the Food Bank for Monterey County. With the “Pick It Up, Pay It Forward” campaign, 10% of all proceeds from take-out orders will be donated to the food bank, until December 31st. This initiative does not apply to delivery orders.

With the difficulties of the pandemic, food banks are struggling to keep up with growing demand. So come and pick up your favorite meal today to help us support this cause! Our dishes - especially our family-style take-out boxes – make your taste buds feel great, but, nothing feels better than helping others in need.

Ken and Mona Donkersloot, owners of the three restaurants, are committed to this important need in the community and hope to meet a goal of $50,000.00 for this terrific cause. Urging the community to help, they have personally matched the first $20,000 raised with an additional $5,000.00. There is also a private donor that will donate $25,000 additional if the $50,000 goal is met by December 31st. Help us meet this goal! Let us cook dinner this week - you’ll get an incredible meal and all the satisfaction that comes from doing good.
