Miner Gold Rush 2020

Join Us for the Miner Gold Rush Challenge

The Miner Gold Rush is a 4-mile road race and a 1-mile kids fun run that takes place annually in the fall. This year it will be virtual!


More than 500 people participate in the event each year, including PRA parents and their friends, students, teachers, and community partners. 


Join us from Saturday, September 26 to October 3 for Miner Gold Rush - a fun family event combining our run with a silent auction!
Event includes:
  • One week of community building and fun virtual challenges
  • One week of a silent auction full of valuable items on which to bid 
  • 4 Challenges including a team challenge so you can show your PRA spirit as a class, as a sports team, a club or a group of friends. 
  • Awards and much more! 
Registration is open!
Registration includes race t-shirt, race goody bag, and admission to the silent auction. 
Don’t run? Join us for the silent auction!
There will be something for everyone! Purchase your $5 entry to the silent auction. All proceeds benefit the school.
