The event will also feature the “Tiny Tim Trot” for individuals with a physical challenge. Participants in the race will be allowed to receive assistance.

“Take a break from shopping and decorating, grab your tennis shoes, and join us to work off some of that turkey and pumpkin pie. Concessions will be available,” said Allen Dressler, director of the Department of Parks and Recreation.

The cost is $10 for the 5K and $5for the Gingerbread Sprint.
