Round Valley Run may be one of the most scenic runs you will ever do! This 5.4 mile cross country loop circles Round Valley Lake, providing a run that is very calm and serene as you have a perfect view of the surrounding mountains and the lake. The terrain is mostly flat that winds through meadows and forest providing a running surface that is mostly packed dirt. Our Junior Event (11 - 16) is a flat up and back 1.5 mile course; our easy and fun alternative for young adults. Rather Walk? Our Walk Course is a great option for simply enjoying the scenery as it is a up and back, flat, 2 mile course. Our Kid's Run takes place prior to the main event and is a very popular 200 yard mini-course on a paved surface.
After the Race, join us for food, fun and an amazing raffle with over $7,000 in prizes from local businesses and craft folk. Also bring your own T-shirt and have it silk screened live with our Round Valley Run Logo.
Round Valley Run is popular as a destination race as families enjoy escaping the hustle and bustle of city life to run and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding Indian Valley. The camping, fishing, hiking, biking, and boating in Indian Valley make for a wonderful family retreat! We're looking forward to seeing you out here!
