Runners get ready for 19th Nevada Day Classic
More than 400 runners and walkers are expected to hit the streets of Carson City for the 19th annual Carson Nugget Nevada Day Classic on Saturday, Oct 27.
The event, sponsored by the Carson Nugget, Fleet Feet, and the Sagebrush Stompers, benefits Special Olympics.
The run features an 8-k and 2-mile runs and 2-mile walk through the city’s historical district, all starting from the corner of Telegraph and Curry streets, across the street from the Carson Nugget.
