Distance Classic showcases community trails

On April 29, Starkey Ranch was host to nearly 500 participants in the 2017 Distance Classic, a combination of our 5K and 10K races that took runners through the beautiful trails of the community.

 

Beginning at the nearly completed Starkey Ranch District Park, the run featured views from many of the community’s 20-miles of trails, of which nearly 7 miles are completed. Runners enjoyed a sneak peak at two of our newest amenities, including Cunningham Park, which will be home to a large multi-purpose building, community garden and kayak/canoe launch.

 

Proceeds from the race will benefit educational enhancement programs at River Ridge Middle School and River Ridge High School. Volunteers from the schools were on hand to help with race logistics.

 

You’ll want to mark your calendars for next year’s race, which will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2018. For more information on race results or to see the photos from this year’s race, please visit StarkeyRanchDistanceClassic.com.
