DURHAM, Calif. – More than 500 runners took part in the 48th annual Blossom Run in Durham on Sunday.

The run supports the Durham sports boosters and runners get to enjoy the beautiful blooms on the almond trees this time of year.
The goal this year is to raise money for new bleachers for intermediate and high school sports teams.

Two of the 5K winners are Durham natives who were happy to help support the schools.

President of Durham Sports Boosters, Shelinda Bryant said she’s very excited.

“Especially because one of them is our cross country team runners and she’s on our track team, so it’s exciting when a local can win,” Bryant said.

Sophomore, Mikaela Murasko said she was working to make her goal.

“My goal was actually to get first in my age group because I did that last year, it feels pretty good. I haven’t actually been running that much I just started track so it feels pretty good.

Another runner, Senior, David Smith said “So last year’s results I think there are a couple of people who were running really fast. So I didn’t know if they were going to be at this race so my goal was to run with them at the start and just keep that pace and beat them at the end,” David Smith said.

Bryant said the Durham sports boosters will help the sports team receive uniforms and equipment as well.
