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 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.
