HOLIDAY SPIRIT and SUMMER TEMPERATURES

The Christmas In July edition of the 12K o’ Christmas DCNR is allowing us a make-up date from last December’s races.

The start and finish for both races is the Tyler Park Center For The Arts (TPCA)

12K o’ Christmas: 7.45 Miles in Tyler State Park, (surface is paved asphalt bike path)

and our gift to you: We've made the nastiest of the hills on this course the DOWNHILLS!

The climbs will be the longer gradual climbs NOT the steep hills of Tyler

             “Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people only once a year.”

             If you only run Tyler once a year, this is the course to run

Course will be marked by the Kilometer Marks along the way (not the mile marks) You might want to wear your GPS (or you have something to ask Santa for!)

TIME LIMITS: THE PACE LIMIT IS 14:53 PER MILE. (that's 6:30 marathon pace) you can continue on the course after that time but may do so unsupported by the race.

WITH CURRENT RESPONSE TO THE 12K BEING HIGH WE DO NOT ANTICIPATE OPENING THE 5K

TIME LIMITS: THE PACE LIMIT IS 14:53 PER MILE. (that's 6:30 marathon pace) you can continue on the course after that time but may do so unsupported by the race.

COVID MITIGATION PLANS STILL IN EFFECT. As of the permitting process, we still need to follow certain procedures. You, by your entry agree to follow any and all protocols in place at the time of the event to ensure that we all follow the letter of the law of all permits, which will prevent the DCNR from stopping the race as it happens. 

CURRENT PROTOCOLS include but are not limited to:

  • Self-Carry Hydration. We will have refilling stations on the course but at the time of publication you are responsible to carry your own.                                     runningWATER REFILLING STATIONS WILL BE LOCATED at 1.2 MILES, 2.9 MILES, 4.1 MILES, 6.2 MILES and the Start-Finish
