There is nothing better for blowing off a little steam than taking a jog in the park on a brisk fall day, unless of coursethat jog can earn you a trophy.
On Sunday, Oct 14, the West Deptford Middle School PTO will host the 5K Trail Run for the Holidays at West Deptford Park. The race begins at 9 a.m. with a free 400-meter run for kids and $5 fun walk.
Registration for the event begins at 7:30 a.m. and costs $20 per participant.
All proceeds from the walk will go to Operation Blessing, a schoolwide effort to help families in need during the holiday season. Operation Blessing provides families from the Gloucester County Homeless Prevention program with daily necessities, including toys for the holidays.
Each participant will receive a T-shirt and refreshment during the event. In addition, trophies will be awarded to the top male and female finisher in the teen and adult categories. The top male and female finisher for the youngest and oldest age in the race will also receive a trophy.
Medallions will also be awarded for the top three males and top three females in various age categories ranging from 10 years old and younger to 70 years old and up.
