It's time to start planning for the Cherry Days 5k run/walk. Scheduled for Friday, July 5, this year's race begins and ends at Apple Valley Park and follows the same course as past years. This year's race is being organized by Elementary School and the Paonia Parent Organization, which also organized the 2018 Mountain Harvest Festival 5k. The course is both baby stroller and dog friendly and perfect for the serious runner, as it will be professionally timed by ScottMeets. Official results will be available immediately following the race.
Pre-registration is available at paoniacherrydays.com under the "Activities" tab. Race fees, due the morning of the race, are $30 for adults and $15 for ages 17 and under. Race-day check-in begins at 6 a.m, and race time is at 7 a.m. sharp.
