Paonia Elementary School 5k Run

Paonia Elementary School 5k Run

Paonia Town Park

Sunday at 8:30 am

Paonia Elementary School is back on the move at Mountain Harvest Festival with the third annual 5k fun run! The event will take off from Town Park at 8:30am on Sunday. Pre-registration is available online from the button below, with race day registration beginning at 7:30am.


Fun will include age-group winner medals, great take-homes for all participants, and some unexpected bonus awards. The race is being coordinated by the Paonia Elementary School Parent Organization (PPO). The group is made up of parent volunteers who coordinate and implement a variety of fund raisers and volunteer time to support the students, teachers, and staff at the school. Money raised at this event will help fund a planned mural designed to enhance the outdoor appeal of the school, as well as other school needs.


Mountain Harvest Festival has been held for many years to celebrate the plentitude of fruits and vegetables that grow so well in this region; this run also celebrates the children who thrive in this area. As parents in this community, PPO volunteers believe that the roots of a good education are important in helping our children to flourish. Get your “move on” at the Mountain Harvest Fest 5k, and help support your community’s local students!
