SNOWMAN RUN 5K
WHEN: Saturday, January 20 - 9 am
The Snowman Run is a 5k race geared towards kids but open to all ages. Our adorable race shirts feature three "coal" buttons, and participants complete the look by adding scarves, hats and more. Special prizes are awarded for best dressed snowman, adding a whole other (warm and fuzzy!) layer to the fun! The event is timed, with prizes awarded to first, second and third places in each age division. Best of all, the race concludes with a seasonally appropriate "warm down" area complete with hot cocoa, s'mores and a huge fire pit. It's the perfect way to keep your family active and healthy in these cold winter months.Four-legged friends are also invited to join the fun, and can walk or run alongside their owners but must remain on a leash. Dogs are also eligible for the Snowman Costume contest, so grab your pupper and his corncob pipe!
After the race, visit Farr Best Theatre in Historic Downtown Mansfield for a showing of Frozen at 2:30 p.m.
