We all took a year off last year, so It’s time to dust off those running shoes and get training for the 13th annual Applefest 5K run and 2.5K Fitness walk! It is set to kick off the Applefest Festivities Saturday October 2, 2021 in beautiful downtown Cedaredge.  The race starts at 8:00 am. The run (or walk) is a scenic route starting at the Cedaredge Town Park and meandering past orchards, farmland and neighborhoods on paved roads.  Don’t be fooled by the cheerful balloons at the starting gate! This can be a challenging run for seasoned 5Kers and a worthwhile walk for fitness walkers.
