The event is untimed, so if you feel like you need to run or walk more than the 5K, you can do that. This is a perfect opportunity to burn off some extra holiday calories that might be accumulating with the season’s cookies, pies and other goodies finding their way in my house. Prizes are not awarded to the fastest runner but to some of the festive sweaters you might see out on the course.
Prizes and trophies are awarded for the “ugliest” holiday sweater. Last year, the winner wore a crazy, life sized sweater and the year before was a sweater designed to look like a fireplace with stockings on the mantel and an ipad built into the sweater playing a crackling fire.
The event is a ton of fun for everyone at any fitness level and family friendly too. (My kiddos were happy with the one mile loop last year and waited and cheered while I finished my 5K distance and enjoyed some of the egg nog and pasteries that were donated last year.)
I am sad to not be able to attend this year, but I hope you lace your shoes (with bells on) and tell me all about this fun event.
When: Sat. December 20th. 9am until 11am.
Where: Road Runner Sports Tualatin ( 7063 SW Nyberg St. Tualatin, OR 97062)
