It's pear blossom weekend. And the festivities that started yesterday evening. It included a parade, a street fair and even several runs. Thats right, Almost 2000 people signed up and ran in the 5k today that run, just over three miles. for many, this was their first time participating in the pear blossom run.
"oh my gosh, such a rush, rewarding. gonna aim for the 10 miler next year" Said one of the Pear Blossom runners.
Hundreds of people also showed up for the ymca mayors cup, congrats to all our rogue valley runners today!
