Silver Oak hosts walk/run on Sept. 21

The Carson City Kiwanis Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day walk/run, co-sponsored with KaiaFit and the Tahoe Mountain Milers, will be held at the Silver Oak golf course on Sept. 21 at 8 a.m.

This year the distances will be shortened to be the same as those of the Nevada Day race so it will give runners and walkers a tuneup for that event.

There will be a 2-mile walk/run instead of a 5K. Also, the 10K previously held will now be an 8K or 5 Mile walk/run. There still be a fun run for 12 years old and younger.

The Fun Run is $10. The 2 mile walk/run will be $20 and the 8K or 5 mile walk/run will be $30. All participants will receive a T-shirt. There will also be plaques to the winners. There will be medals for those who win their age group.

To enter participants can register on online at or pick up an application at Blue Zone Sports in south Carson or South Tahoe. There will be late registration starting at 7 a.m. Richaun Pressley, KaiaFit, will be in charge of early packet pickup Sept. 20 at the Silver Oak clubhouse, 5-6:30 p.m.
