Matt ran this last year and here is a highlight:

Music was blaring, local restaurants were serving food and 2 Towns Cider and Block 15 Brewing were providing drinks. Winners were receiving awesome flower planters for placing and it just had a fantastically festive feel. Add in a sprinkling of sun, and you have a great day. This race comes highly recommended by yours truly.

There will be a slight change this year for the 15k course – no more muddy trail and an added beautiful river view! All the races are out and backs, starting and finishing at the same place.  Cool interactive maps for all the races can be found here!

Finishers will receive a pint glass and a free beverage.  Prizes will be given out to the top 3 overall winners in the 15k and 5k race.  The top 3 in will be pulled out for age group  winners as well.

This Best in the West event supports the Family Assistance Program.

Want to get involved, but don’t want to walk/run? Volunteers needed!  You can register to help Here!
