Run a race, plant a flower

The 7th Annual Penn Valley Daffodil Run gives everybody a chance to compete ” and everyone who does helps plant a flower.

The Daffodil Run has been using the proceeds from the race to purchase daffodil bulbs, which are planted by members of the Penn Valley Daffodil Planting Program to line the major roads in Penn Valley.

Ready Springs, Pleasant Valley and Clear Creek schools have a friendly competition to see who can get the most participants. The winner gets a $500 prize. The rest of the money is shared by the presenters for community service programs.

Race day is April 15. Registration is 7 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. in Buttermakers Cottage, Western Gateway Park. Prices vary depending on the race to be run and the age of the participants; prices go up after April 6. The kids’ quarter-mile run (ages 10 and under) is free.

With age categories from younger than 8 to more than 70 years, the whole family can run together.

For more information, go to or contact race director Joan at 432-9102.
