On Saturday, I joined a crowd of runners (it seemed like more than 200, but I am not sure) in Grass Valley for the first annual Run for the Community 5K/10K. The event was hosted by the Twin Cities Church and was the fifth run in the Gold Country Grand Prix series.
I had scouted out the course with Sid Heaton last week and it was a good thing we did. The course (especially the last half of the 10K) was a lot harder that I had expected for a Grass Valley run. It almost reminded me of the Salmon Run and some parts were actually steeper.
