THE SMELT RUN IS BACK! After a year long hiatus the Smelt Run is returning to to La Conner. The run has three options for anyone at any level to join. Certified 5k and 10k routes that start along the historic waterfront of La Conner and out across the mostly flat farmland of Skagit Valley finishing back at La Conner Elementary School.
There are two less intense ways to get in on the action at 2K family walk and a kids dash for the little ones.
The Smelt Runs are just part of the events during the Smelt Derby Festival hosted by La Conner Rotary. There are many other Smelt Derby events to partake in while in La Conner. Hope to see you here.
