Catch the Spear-It, In Person or Virtually! The 5k Run and Walk held in beautiful, downtown Silver Lake at the Dune Town Mall will be back in person this year as well as giving you the option to run virtually!  For those who choose to run virtually, you can run the traditional race course which follows the lakeshore into the wooded, winding roads of the Upper Silver Lake area, providing beautiful scenery and natural landscapes that end right back at the Dune Town Mall.  Or you can choose to run anywhere that is convenient to you!  This year’s run will be a fun run with each participant receiving a commemorative t-shirt and medal.  Trophy’s will be awarded to the top male and female runners.  Be sure to post your results and/or a post run photo to Facebook or Instagram, tagging the National Asparagus Festival, with the hashtag #SpearGus5k to be entered into our door prize drawings!

Race Sponsored by Shelby State Bank and Gales Agency 

This event was renamed in honor of Ryan Walsworth, who passed away in early 2017. Ryan, a local asparagus farmer, was a faithful contributor and donor to NAF as well as supporting the asparagus and agriculture community here in Oceana County and beyond. We are honored to recognize Ryan's hard work and community spirit through the 5k.

5K Run & 5K Walk - Registration fee is $20

If you have questions about the event, please contact the 5K coordinator, Michele Amstutz, at (231)218-3818 or by email at spearit5k@gmail.com.
