Janelle McLeod's thoughts:

This is my 2nd year running this event and it never disappoints. This race is typically the weekend before Christmas and offers a 5k and a 10k course. It begins at a local high school where there is plenty of parking and only a short walk to the starting line.

I love how family friendly this event is as they welcome all ages, strollers and even dogs. This year I ran the 10k with my 2.5 year old goldendoodle and we had no issues. The course runs along the paved bike trails through some residential areas with plenty of room to pass other runners as needed. There are some challenging hills but you are equally rewarded with a downhill shortly after.

This race also benefits a local charity for Keatan Raphael fighting Childhood Cancer. I am happy to run this race, promote this race and continue to sign up for this race for years to come. The community genuinely comes together to raise funds for this important cause and many students from the local high school volunteer their time to come out and cheer on the runners as well as man the aid stations. It is a positive experience with a cheerful vibe and I encourage you to check it out if you are in the area!
