Annual Pear Blossom Run

Plantiva is once again proud to sponsor the Rogue Valley Family YMCA's Pear Blossom Run on April 13, 2024!

This historic event has been held ever since 1977 in conjunction with the annual Pear Blossom Festival in Medford, OR.

The run is the brainchild of Zellah and Jerry Swartsley who in 1971 were returning home from graduate school at Montana State University. They stopped in Salt Lake City where Jerry would finish 8th in a marathon. This gave them the idea to start their own event in Oregon, and 6 years later the inaugural run was won by Olympic Medalist Frank Shorter.

Nearly 50 years later, the annual run is still going strong!

You can find out more about the race here: Pear Blossom Run

The street fair will be April 12th and 13th with food, games, arts, crafts, and more. Don't miss the fun!

Friday: Noon to 10 pm
Saturday: 7 am to 6 pm
Location: Downtown Medford, OR
