Inaugural 5K/10K draws 155

The inaugural Carson Valley Days Walk, Jog, Run featured 155 participants Saturday morning.

"The Partnership of Community Resources was the sponsor of the event and we're more than pleasantly surprised to see the number of people that came out to share time with family and friends to work on building stronger bodies while enjoying healthy outdoor activities," partnership events coordinator Melinda Matus said.

Participants walked or jogged across the finish line adorned by a bright red balloon arch to finish the race along soothing Lampe Creek.

Registrations were coming in right up until 11:20 p.m. the night before the race for the event which was created as part of the Partnership's family event day.

"The huge response proved that our community really desires events that allow them to get out and participate in healthy, fun events and the Partnership, along with many community partners, made it possible," Matus said.

Matus said she wanted to thank Captain Mike Biaggini, deputies Brett Hicks, James Booth and Sergeant Mick Doan of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office for controlling traffic while keeping the participants safe as they ran down Buckeye and the parade route.

She said she also wanted to thank Western Nevada College, Minden Elementary School, and GE Energy for allowing the use of their properties for the event; the family, friends and Rite of Passage youth that donated time to register, do traffic control and keep our participants safe, Douglas High teacher Keith Cole, Big Daddy's Bicycles, Fleet Feet Carson City, Enterprise Rent a Car, DART, Wal Mart, Cost Co., Soy Joy Bars and Michael Hohl Carson Valley.
