Main Street Gardnerville has partnered with Wreaths Across America to honor all 225 Military Veterans laid to rest at Garden Cemetery. This year $5.00 from every registration will go towards purchasing a wreath for these Veterans.

(1447 Courthouse Alley) Race Begins at 8:00am... RAIN or SHINE! We recommend all walkers stay to the middle of the pack and those with strollers or leashed dogs at the back to allow runners the space they need for a good run without obstacles. Thank you. Dogs are welcome to join the fun, please make sure they are not aggressive, are current on their vaccinations, and child/dog friendly. ALL DOGS MUST BE ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES AND WILL BE POSITIONED AT THE BACK OF THE STARTING PACK. PRIZE BREAKDOWN: 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finishers will receive a trophy. All participants will receive running medals. Thank you for your support!
