On Saturday, July 16 the Escalon Park Fete 2-mile and 10k runs are scheduled, with sign ups going on now. There will be several age brackets, with medals for top overall finishers, male and female, in each race in each age group. ShadowChase Running Club is coordinating the runs.
Runners can take part in either event and this year features a new, lower cost for runners 19 and under to encourage more young people to participate.
The 2-mile fun run is a walk or run and covers paved city streets. The 10k run covers both paved city streets and country roads.
Cost is $30 for adults for either race, $15 for those 19 and under. The races start at 7:30 a.m., leaving from California and Irwin.
Online registration is available at runsignup.com.
