Harmony Run next up on Grand Prix

The sweet sound of hundreds of feet pounding the pavement will be the tune Saturday at Nevada Union High School as runners gather for the fourth stop on the Gold Country Grand Prix, the Harmony run 5K/10K and 3-mile walk.

The Harmony Run is put on by the Nevada Union High School Choir with the 5K and 10K courses taking runners around the periphery of Nevada Union High School and Sierra College. The 3-mile walk event is on the same course starting at the same time. No dogs are allowed on the course and strollers not recommended.

The day gets started with registration at 7 a.m. in Hooper Stadium, and the races start near the wrestling gym and finish back at Hooper Stadium. Registration costs $25 and includes a T-shirt. Runners awards will be presented to the top three male and female finishers and for the top three in each age division. For information, contact race organizer Dan Cooper at dan@threeacres.org or call 530-263-2831.

With the Gold Country Grand Prix age group point races starting to heat up, this race provides the next chance for runners to either catch up to the leaders or add to their point totals.

Last year’s Harmony Run was an 8K only with the overall winners being Bjorn Jones (30 minutes, 14 seconds) in the men’s race and Kerri Latter (38:51) in the women’s race.
