On Saturday, Dec. 14, grab your best and ugliest holiday sweater and join the Vail Recreation District for a fun-filled morning run through Vail Village while collecting donations for the The Community Market and Toys for Tots. This is a non-competitive event that will start and finish at Bart and Yeti's in Lionshead beginning at 8:30 a.m. The course is approximately three miles, and the race will be followed by a lively after-party at Bart & Yeti's. Prizes will be awarded for best outfits by individuals, teams, dogs and kids. Santa Claus will be leading runners through town on a bike, and participants will encounter fun aid stations and challenges along the route. Adding to the festivities will be the Battle Mountain High School Choir, serenading the runners and spectators with holiday tunes! Entry is FREE with donation of food or a new, unwrapped toy for our charitable partners. Cash donations will also be accepted on race day. Even though this is a free event, please sign up in advance so we know how many people to expect! Day-of registration will also be available.
