Cash prizes are being awarded at the end of the two fun run races during the 52nd annual Almond Blossom Festival the last weekend in February, according to Laurin Sephos who serves as Ripon Chamber of Commerce events manager.
The fun run features a mile and an 8K course beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 22.
“It’s a great way to feel better about all that festival food you will be enjoying over at Mistlin Sports Park,” Sephos said.
Pre-registration continues until Feb. 17. There is also race day registration.
Runners will start at Mavis Stouffer Park. The first male and female to cross the finish line in each race will receive a cash prize.
Registration fees are $15 for ages 10 and under; $20 for 11 and older. Runners may participate in both races for an additional $5.
Entry forms are available at the Ripon Chamber of Commerce office or online at RiponChamber.org.
