This year's event was set up as a fundraiser for youth recreational programs in Indian Valley, benefiting the Indian Valley Recreation, and Parks District and the Sierra Institute for Community and Environment. The weather stayed cool as runners took off early Saturday morning. The annual run started with a 200-meter dash for the younger athletes at the event. Velocity Wahl came in first in the kids' race. At 9 a.m., a mass of runners and walkers took off from the start/finish line at the day-use area on the lake shore. Participants followed one of three routes, depending on their age and preferences. The main route spanned 5.4 miles, taking runners through the woods around the lake. Walkers went a distance of 2.5 miles, taking in views from the county road, which was paved for most of the way. Runners under 16 followed a 1.5-mile route that was entirely paved. The first to cross the finish line were the winners of the under-16 race: Jacob Cook, 9, and Desiree Barley, 10. Cook and Bailey decided at the start of the race to run together, to keep each other company. Both finished together in 15 minutes, 26 seconds. For his second year in a row, Matt Staggs placed first in the 5.4-mile run. Staggs Matt Staggs crosses the finish line to place first in the Round Valley Run/Walk for the second year in a row.
