The 2nd Annual Grass Valley Clydesdale Classic 5K run/walk and 10k run and the Inaugural Team Clydesdale International and World Championship will be held Sept. 22 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

The 5K and 10K races in all divisions will begin at 8 am. Race-day registration will begin at 7 am at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, where two Clydesdales will be posted to greet runners. The races will start and finish at the fairgrounds, traveling through neighborhoods and downtown Grass Valley.

The run, put on by Team Clydesdale, the Grass Valley/Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and the Sierra Trailblazers, will be Team Clydesdale’s final event of the season for qualifying for the London Marathon, held next April.
