The West Antelope Valley Education Foundation and the High Desert Runners would like to invite you to the 10th annual Nutty Runners 5k AND 10K – race, fun run and walk. This is an event for everybody, including our four footed furry friends.

This year, we have our first ever 10K followed by our traditional 5k. We also are adding the NUTTY DOUBLE – the opportunity to display your nuttiness by running both races back to back. The races are held on the paths of beautiful Marie Kerr Park in Palmdale with medals for all finishers, free t-shirts (while supplies last), age group awards in 5 year brackets, valuable goodie bags and an awesome raffle!

Come join us and help support WAVE, an organization which provides funds for extra-curricular activities for the children in the Westside Union School District.
