Basehor Dairy Days begins June 7
The ninth annual Basehor Dairy Days is scheduled to kick off June 7 at Basehor City Park and the brand new Crazy Cow 5K run and walk along with other special events.
Basehor Dairy Days Association and the Basehor Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to bring the 5K event back to Dairy Days and the money raised from the race will go back to the Dairy DaysAssociation for future events. The race will begin at the city park and will head northeast to Meyer Drive before looping back to the park. Registration for the race is $30 before May 1 and $35 after. The Basehor Chamber of Commerce is accepting sponsors for the 5K race through May 9.
