This is a time tested Holiday themed fun run! The 5k course is very flat and fun.

Walkers will be happy to spend time on the red brick road and by a Christmas Tree that is sure to help the Holiday Spirit. Many walkers and runners have brought their dogs along in the past and we hope to see yours make the trip for a free dog treat.
Medals for top 3 male and female finishers and age category winners.
Top 3 Holiday themed costumes will split $300.00 in door prizes!
