Miner Gold Rush

The Miner Gold Rush is a 4-mile road race and a 1-mile kids fun run that takes place annually in the fall. More than 500 people participate in the event each year, including PRA parents and their friends, students, teachers, and community partners. The race takes place during our Fall Festival, which includes entertainment for the whole family, food trucks, and a sponsor expo.
