The inaugural Elves On The Run 5K and Fun Run is set for tomorrow morning, December 3, at Grapevine’s Oak Grove Park. The event supports the activities of the Women’s Division of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce—one of GRACE’s strongest and long-time partners.
The 1-Mile Fun Run will begin at 8:30 a.m. The 5K race begins at 9:00 a.m. with awards for men and women in all age categories. Brinker International and Maggiano’s Little Italy are the event’s presenting sponsors.
Santa will be on hand to greet runners at the finish line. There will be music, food trucks and costume contests for participants and spectators. There are prizes for the best elf costume, and for the best registered group in costume. Dogs on leashes are welcome to join in the festive fun.
Fun Run registration is $25/$15 for children (age 10 and younger). The 5K registration is $25 per runner. Special discounts for groups of 5 or more are available. To register now, click on this link: Register Here. The first 500 racers will receive a commemorative Elves On The Run T-shirt.
The Women’s Division operates under the umbrella of the Grapevine Chamber Foundation. The organization began in 1965 and provides assistance to those in need in the community. Current projects include providing school supply packs for GCISD students, and brightening the lives of less fortunate local senior citizens by providing gifts and essential items during the holiday season.
Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available. For more information, please contact Amanda Calongne at 817-229-5911 or visit their website at www.ElvesOnTheRun5K.com
