Congrats Earth Day Runners/Walkers!

The 2nd Earth Day 5K Run/Walk was a great success, thanks to so much enthusiasm from our community. Thank you to all 220 runners and walkers who participated! And special thanks to the following:

  • Odwalla, for donating delicious/nutritious (and eco-friendly) post-race goodies
  • Visalia Parks and Recreation, for providing flawless timing of the event
  • Sole2Soul Sports, for providing the finish line, race preparation assistance and pre-race packet pick-up at their store
  • Visalia Runners Club, for providing race preparation assistance and support
  • The Farmer’s Daughter, for providing boxes of organic produce for our overall male and female race winners
  • And all the other volunteers who helped groom the trails and facilitate a smooth race day!
And now, for what you’ve all been waiting for… RESULTS! It was a fast run this year… fifteen runners ran faster than the winning time last year.
Congratulations to everyone who ran and everyone who walked.

Catch a glimpse of the event with the slideshow below. If you didn’t have the privilege of attending this great event, and if you’re wondering what all the high-fiving is about… Earth Day also happens to be National High Five Day… or so I was told.
