Description

Get Groovy!  Whether you're a flower child or a far-out fat cat, go grab your funky gear and meet us at the starting line!  Our route for the 5K run/walk starts at beautiful Sunset Park, winds through the charming city streets, and ends back at Sunset Park for awards in categories of fastest finishers and best holiday dressed! 

Dress up "Fido" for more chances to win prizes!  Strut Your Mutt is a free event at 9:30 AM, and there is no need to register.  Just meet us out at the Lions Den pavilion.

Children can register for the 100 or 50 yard Grinch Sprint (ages 1-12).  The fastets sprinter will have the honor of being the one to catch and "Cage the Grinch" in this fun dash!
