Dress up in your favorite Christmas costume, ugly sweater, Santa Claus outfit or come dressed as your favorite Christmas movie character (prize for best costume) and join us Saturday, December 9th for our 1st Annual 12K’s of Christmas 12K/5K Race & Fun Run & Walk at Leatherwood Park in Lore City, Ohio. This event is meant to showcase the Great Guernsey Trail, while helping to collect new unwrapped toys that will be donated to the Guernsey County Secret Santa. Individuals that bring a new, unwrapped toy will be entered into a chance to win gift cards or cash. This will be a chipped timed race with timing services provided by Muskingum Multi-Sports.
Proceeds raised at this event will support the Guernsey County Community Development’s Military Veterans Transportation Program. This program provides free transportation for area veterans to and from medical appointments as well to and from appointments such as VA, personal and legal. Each month the program completes over 60 runs and currently assists over 30 veterans. The program relies completely on donations and fundraisers.
