Instead of the traditional t-shirt for participating in the run, the participants received a healthy tomato plant to begin their vegetable gardens.

The Spring Run is the second race in the Gold Country Grand Prix. The next race is the Community 5&10K on May 18 sponsored by Twin Cities Church in Grass Valley.
