Get in the spirit this holiday season and hit the pavement to celebrate the season! Wear a holiday themed costume or running gear, tie jingle bells to your shoelaces and hoof it through a 5K or 10K route. Runners will charge, trot, walk, run and jingle through the streets and trails of South Riding. Kids (or kids at heart) can join the fun, too, by participating in the approximately ¾ mile fun run!
Stick around after the run for a hot chocolate bar, breakfast, and prizes!
Fun Run will start at 8am, 5k & 10k will start after that.
No refunds or bib transfers.
This is a rain or shine event.
