Your course times will be tabulated for overall Top Three Places and in 5 year age spans for AGE DIVISION AWARDS.  The difference in 2020 will be a MASKED ASSEMBLED, rather than a MASS ASSEMBLY.  We will still have the same FUN HOLIDAY set up and festivities. You do not need to wear a mask while running. 


There are “In It To Win It” age categories 3 deep with 5 year age spans: 1-10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39 40-44, 45-49, 50-54,55-59 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79 and 80 & over. 

You’ll enjoy Christmas carolers at the start and Christmas music along the course.
