William B. Meyer, Inc. is proud to present the 19th Annual MEYER Holiday 5K Run/Walk for Toys on Sunday, December 17!

Online pre-registration for the race closes on Thursday, Dec 14th at 8pm. Registration will re-open on Satrurday 12/16 at SoundRunner during packet pickup 10am-12noon. And on site at the race on Sunday, Dec 17th at 8am.This family friendly event has one simple goal- to make as many kids happy through the Holidays as possible.   

To 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.

All toys collected at the event by our Title Sponsor William B. Meyer and are donated to the Fairfield Police Toy Drive. They will be distributed to children in need in and around the Fairfield County area. 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.

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 5 to 88! 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. Our fees are family friendly- our race welcomes even the youngest runners.

Thanks for joining us and making a difference in our community- we will have plenty of food and hot fluids when you are done and a nice warm spot to relax in!
