Fundraising races in Davis

The Golden Valley Harriers Labor Day Races in Davis celebrate a community event organized by volunteers. Scheduled are a 5k, 10k, Doggy Dash 5k and Kids Fun Run. The events are scheduled from 7:30 to 11 a.m. at Central Park, 401 C St. According to organizers, the event has raised more than $10,000 per year for the past eight years with proceeds supporting local schools, Team Davis and community running programs.
