    2015 Valdez Race Series
    2015 Valdez Race Series List of Events
    We are happy to introduce the new Parks & Recreation Valdez RACE Series- with new runs, xc ski, snowshoe, and bike races included! And of course, we will still be sponsoring our annual fan favorites, like the Bite Back Runs, Uncle Salmon Fun Runs, and Labor Day Family Fun Runs.

    New in 2015, we will also be including a $5 registration fee for all Parks & Rec Races, which will go toward prizes, new racing equipment, more up-to-date racing technology, as well as funding for new races and runs!
