What’s the Event? 

There is so much for you and your family to do at this event. The start line will have fun activities, such as massive inflatables, photo stations, games, and of course, holiday music. Once you finish the 3.1 mile race and make it to the finish line, you’ll get to snap a family photo in a huge snow-globe and have some  fun playing in the fake snow. Don’t stress if you haven’t trained or ran in a while. All walkers, runners, or anything in between are welcome to participate! Take your time and enjoy the beautiful city streets and scenic parks. 

Once the race is over, the post-race event will have plenty of fun for the whole family and the pup! Enjoy a Kahlúa cocktail, a festive hot chocolate, and other holiday goodies. The event will also give awards for Best Ugly Sweater, Best Kids Sweater, Best Pet Attire and Best Real/Fake Mustache/Beard, so be sure to pick out your best outfit for you and your furry friend!
