The day starts of with a kids run on the walking path in Town Center Park, starting and finishing right at the Parks and Rec building. The kids run is free, but pre-registration is highly recommended so that you child will receive a shirt and a goody bag. After all kids have finished their run, the 5k(-ish) run/walk takes to the streets. In past years, there was good course marking and volunteer staffing, but the course was open to traffic, and runners and walkers are asked to follow the rules of the road and stop at red lights.
At the finish, runners and walkers are greeted by Bullwinkle the Moose! In past years he even handed us a $5 arcade card to use inside the Fun Center. The post-race party with pizza, soda, music, crafts, and several other goodies, also takes place inside the Fun Center, which is a great way to warm up on a cool December morning.
