A big thank you to everyone who came out to make our third 5K Salmon Run in Bidwell Park a huge success! Some repeat Salmon Run participants told us they thought this race was the best one yet. Changing the race time from spring to fall allowed us a new experience of beautiful Bidwell Park, in the shade of towering trees starting to change color.
We want to congratulate our top male and female race finishers: Stuart Mayer with a time of 19:07.1, and Jacqueline Demko with a time of 24:00.04! We hope they’ll enjoy their gift certificate prizes to the Rawbar and Tres Hombres in Chico. All of our racers put in a great effort, including some of our staff and their families! You can download the 2016 Salmon Run Results to see the times of our top 25 race finishers.
The salmon run is always a great opportunity for FISHBIO’s staff to converge from all of our California offices. This year we were particularly excited to celebrate FISHBIO’s 10 year anniversary, and enjoyed reflecting on how far we’ve come.
Thank you to all of our Chico contributors who helped make the run a success, including Raw Bar, Tres Hombres, Costco, Pita Pit, Campus Bikes, and Alhambra. Stay tuned for our forthcoming video of the 2016 Salmon Run! In the meantime, you can enjoy our photos on Flickr. Thank you again for helping us celebrate salmon and the other special migratory fishes of Chico!
