The MEYER Holiday 5k Run For Toys: race description
William B. Meyer, Inc. is proud to present the 18th Annual MEYER Holiday 5K Run/Walk for Toys on Sunday, December 18!
Online pre-registration for the race closes on Friday, Dec 15th at 8pm EST.Registration will re-open on site at the race on Sunday, Dec 18th 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 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 6 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!
Registration includes a small fee and at least one, new, unwrapped toy suitable for ages 1-16. Come dressed to run, stay for the fun! Long sleeved T-shirts may be purchased ahead with a limited amount available on race day. This event has no makeup date and if it is cancelled due to severe weather there are no refunds.
