CAMINO — What began as an earnest attempt by the Apple Hill Growers Association to convince visitors that the season didn’t close at the end of October has evolved into one of the most popular family races in Northern California.

The growers organized every aspect of the race at first, but after over a decade of hard work, they realized the race had out grown their capabilities and they found the support they needed in the Camino Schools. In the case of the Camino Schools, it not only “takes a village” to organize the annual Apple Hill Harvest Run, but also well over 100 family and community members, school staff and students. This dedicated group of volunteers has been in charge for 16 years, and this year will be the 33rd anniversary of the race.

This year’s run takes place Sunday, Nov. 4. Registration forms are available at applehillrun.org or at the following locations: Apple Hill Grower Ranches, Camino School, located at 3060 Snows Road or by mail at P.O. Box 494 Camino, 95709.

Perks to pre-registration are special rates, special drawings and a guaranteed AHHR T-shirt. All race activities begin and end at ParaVí Winery — No. 12 on the Apple Hill map.

Race day registration starts at 7 a.m.

The run benefits the Camino School District.

For more information, call 916-492-8966.

The Apple Hill Harvest Run has grown to the point where it is able to fund a number of programs at Camino Union School District through the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The race also allows the Apple Hill Growers Association to award two significant annual scholarships to area high-school seniors.
