WE RUN THIS TOWN FUN RUN SERIES

Join us as we get moving on Main Street with our inaugural WE RUN THIS TOWN Fun Run/Walk Series! We have expanded on the familiar favorite: Freedom 5K Run for the Wreath, Wreaths Across America Fundraiser, and added two new races to get you movin’ and shaking throughout the year with the Carson Valley Days 5k Classic before the Carson Valley Days Parade, and the Paint it Pink 5k for Breast Cancer awareness in October.

BONUS: if you register for all three fun runs and complete them, you will get a commemorative “I Run This Town” Tee shirt to boast your efforts!
