The Ryan Walsworth Spear-It

5k Run/Walk

June 13, 2020

Join EnerG Fitness of New Era for a pre-run stretch and warm up!

Sponsored By: 

Catch the Spear-It! The 5k Run and Walk starts in beautiful, downtown Silver Lake at the Dune Town Mall with a five star view of the famous Silver Lake Sand Dunes.  The course 

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.


This event is in loving memory of Ryan Walsworth, a former local asparagus farmer who 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.

A special thank-you to New Era's American Asparagus and Silver Lake Chicken Shack for your generous contribution to the festival. New Era's American Asparagus has donated fresh, local asparagus so that all participants get a taste of the local crop, and Silver Lake Chicken Shack allows us to use their facilities for coordinating this event every year. Thank you both for your continued support.
