Description

We are proud to present the 20th Annual Holiday 5K Run/Walk for Toys on Sunday, December 16!

All toys collected at the event will be donated & distributed by AMR AMBULANCE & AL’S ANGELS

This family friendly event has a simple goal- to make as many kids as happy as we all can!

Please see our family friendly pricing outline below.

To help us achieve this goal, as part of your entry fee, we ask that you bring a new, unwrapped toy suitable for children between 1-16 years old.

AMR Ambulance & Al’s Angels will distribute toys to children in need in and around the Fairfield County area.

Al’s Angels primary focus is to distribute to kids ten years old and younger- toys for them should be age appropriate.

AMR distribution includes all ages of children thru 16 years old  

Additional proceeds from the run will be donated to the Fairfield Police Union Scholarship Fund, Fairfield Police Explorers and Operation Warm through the Fairfield Fire Dept., which provides brand new winter coats to children in need.

Awards, prizes, and/or crazy holiday gifts are given to the M&F Champions as well as three deep in age groups 9 & under, 10-12, 13-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+ (or older if pre registered) 

Our course through the South Pine Creek area of Fairfield is FLAT, fun, and easily doable even for the youngest runners. Last year our runners ranged from 6 to 81! In 2012 the "Girls on the Run" team made this their final event and brought in close to 40 girls aged 12 and under. If the conditions permit nearly half of a mile will be on a groomed, flat trail on part of a land trust. The decision on which course is used will be made on Friday 12/14 after evaluating the conditions and weather predictions.

 THIS EVENT MAY BE REDUCED IN DISTANCE IF ROAD & WEATHER CONDITIONS WARRANT IT FOR SAFETY.

Our fees are family friendly- our event welcomes even the youngest of runners and walkers. 
$11 for 19-69 thru December 14 at 8pm  Donation then increases to $15 online starting 12/15 at 12:01 am & on site 12/16 till 8:45am
$8 for 18 & under AND 70+ thru 12/14. Donation then increases to $10 online & on site- hours as stated above. 

FREE LITTLE TYKES JINGLE BELL RUN 20 minutes before the 5K. This short scamper (150-200 yards) will be held if conditions are acceptable to insure the safety of our youngsters. Parents can run with the little ones to help prevent any falls, tears or drama.

Thanks for joining us and making a difference in our community. We will have plenty of food and hot fluids when you are done thanks to Taco Loco and their catering team. We also have a nice warm spot to relax in! There will be some shirts for sale at $15 and free massage therapy thanks to TONY TRUJILLO from TONY’S KNEADED TOUCH.

A Specially designed Holiday Run Long Sleeve shirt will be available if purchased in advance. It will be colorful and just $12. Order in advance- only a limited number MAY be available on race day. Sorry we have to close sales 12/6 to be able to order, ship & print shirts. We still hope to have a few extra on 12/16
