The Holiday Hustle 5K road race and one-mile fun run return Dec. 11 after a one-year hiatus due to COVID. The race benefits the Dolly Goodpuppy Society (DGS).
DGS is a licensed local 501c3 canine shelter that works to educate the public on the need for spaying and neutering and houses unwanted dogs until homes can be found for them.
The race has always been run in cold weather so organizers are giving out beanies to finishers instead of t-shirts this year. This race is run at night and runners and volunteers dress in holiday attire – many with Christmas lights.
Participants can register at active.com. You can register the day of the race at Summers Field Park. The fee is $30 for adults and $15 for kids under 13. The fun run starts at 6 p.m. with the 5K following about 6:20 p.m.
