Join the Nampa Parks and Recreation Department for the 35th Annual Harvest Classic Fun Run on Saturday, September 14th. This long-standing Nampa tradition brings together competitive and recreation racers alike for an 8K run, 2 mile run, 2 mile walk and 1 mile non-competitive race. The Harvest Classic offers something for everyone, from the professional runner looking for a fast course to families interested in a fun outdoor activity.
The Harvest Classic Fun Run is more than just fun. Proceeds from the event give back to the community by supporting physical education programs in schools and providing funds for recreation program scholarships. Participants in the Harvest Classic can designate a school to be entered into the race day drawing. Eight $250 awards will be given to the winning schools’ P.E. Departments. The more students and family members that participate, the more chances schools have to win. Additional proceeds from the Harvest Classic help fund youth recreation scholarships.
Post-race activities include jump houses for the kids, vendor booths, and a baked potato bar. Everyone registered in the Harvest Classic will receive a t-shirt, free admission to the Nampa Recreation Center on race day and have the opportunity to win great prizes.
