Ventura County Fair Seeks Participants for 5K Run & Walk

All ages and abilities are invited, and fair-themed costumes are encouraged

The Ventura County Fair and seven-time NCAA Division 1 All American champion Josh Spiker are seeking runners and walkers of all ages to participate in the third annual Ventura County Fair 5K Run & Walk on Saturday, Aug. 6.

The race will begin at 8 a.m. at Mission Park in downtown Ventura, with check-in beginning at 7 a.m.

Runners, joggers and walkers of all abilities are encouraged to participate in this 3.1-mile fundraiser.

Runners are encouraged to dress in fair-themed costumes. Costumes are highly encouraged, and awards will be given to the best-dressed participants. The fair theme is “Bounty of the County,” but participants can dress in any costume.

Awards will be given out for fastest times in five-year age groups.

Stick around to watch the Ventura County Fair Parade, and then go to the Ventura County Fair to make a full day of fun.

New this year will be the free Ventura Family YMCA Kids 1K Run, beginning at 9 a.m. with check-in at 8 a.m. A new course in downtown Ventura will feature the best views in Ventura, Widow Maker Hill and a fast finish down Main Street.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
