Winter Wonderland Fun Run/Walk

December 5, 2021 @ 4:45 pm - 6:15 pm

The Winter Wonderland Fun Run/Walk is a family-friendly way to get active enjoying the light display at Fayette County Park. This is not a race! You can go at your own pace and make as many running or walking laps around the light display as you like (5 laps equals a 5K distance). This is stroller-friendly and ages 6 and under get in free. No pets are allowed, except service animals.
This is a fundraiser for Active SWV and the Fayette County Park. The event is $10 per person (cash or check), but ages 6 and under are free. The first 50 cars at the gate at 4:45 pm will receive a participant gift box. No reservations are needed.
Wear your ugly sweaters! Get in character and secret judges will be checking out all the outfits. Awards will be presented and the opportunity for photos.
This is how the event will be set up:
– arrive at the park gate by 4:45 pm and wait in your cars to enter the park. The park attendant will collect the $10 per person as you pass by the gate and pass out gift packages. The gate will be closed from 5 pm-6 pm.
– fill the parking by the pool area first. This is located past the first left turn, the Canteen log building, and to the left of the large swimming pool.
– Check-in at the Active SWV tent and be sure to let us know if you are participating in the Ugly Sweater contest (or if your regular attire could be confused as an ugly sweater). Watch for cars still coming into the park.
– The Fun Run/Walk is set to start at 5:00 pm. The gate will be closed from 5 pm-6 pm for the safety of the runners and walkers.
– Have fun! Enjoy the lights and costumes. Please maintain distance from those outside of your household.
– Do not move your cars until 6 pm. If you finish early, please wait until 6 pm to move your car.
– When the gate opens at 6 pm, the vehicles waiting to enter the light show will be let in first so there is room on the one-lane road for cars to exit.
Post your photos and follow this hashtag #activeswv for the Ugly Sweater winners!
