Coming April 9, 2016. Think of spring, and you think of flowers, especially those bright, yellow daffodils. What better way to celebrate spring that to take on the Daffodil 5K Challenge in Pierce County, Washington! Held on the same day as the Daffodil Parade and including the same routes as the parade, the challenge consists of four separate 5K races held in four cities across the county. Run or walk one or all four, then stay for the parade after each one. Spring has sprung, and it’s time to take the Challenge!
