The Ag Days 6k run takes place on a course along the Spring Valley paved trail
during Ag Days in Spring Valley on Saturday, August 20.
Mostly adults run this race, which is about 3.72 miles long, but several youth also participate.
Runners will meet from 7 to 7:40 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20, at Willow Park, which is located one block east of downtown, for the 8 a.m. race. Runners will board a bus at 7:45 a.m. for a shuttle to the camper parking area on County Road 8 and run back into Spring Valley along the entire length of the paved trail, which crosses over Spring Valley Creek several times and underneath Highway 16.
The first 75 people registering for the race will get a custom backpack to store athletic gear. There will be an aid station along the course plus refreshments at the end.
