Active Southern West Virginia’s Winter Wonderland Fun Run/Walk

December 4, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

The Winter Wonderland Fun Run/Walk is a family friendly way to get active enjoying the light display at Fayette County Park. This is not a race! You can go at your own pace and make as many running or walking laps around the light display as you like (5 laps equals a 5K distance). This is stroller friendly and ages 6 and under get in free. No pets allowed, except service animals.
This is a fundraiser for Active SWV and the Fayette County Park. The event is $10 per person (cash or check), but ages 6 and under are free. The first 50 cars at the gate at 4:45pm will receive a participant gift box. No reservations needed.
Wear your ugly sweaters! Get in character and secret judges will be checking out all the outfits. Awards will be presented and the opportunity for photos.
This is how the event will be set up:
– Arrive at the park gate by 4:45pm and wait in your cars to enter the park. The park attendant will collect the $10 per person as you pass by the gate and pass out gift packages. The gate will be closed from 5pm-6pm.
– Parking is available by the canteen and the pool area. .
– Check in at the dining hall and be sure to let us know if you are participating in the Ugly Sweater contest (or if you’re regular attire could be confused as an ugly sweater). Watch for cars still coming in to the park.
– The Fun Run/Walk is set to start at 5:00pm. The gate will be closed from 5pm-6pm for the safety of the runners and walkers.
– Have fun! Enjoy the lights and costumes. Flashlights and headlamps are encouraged.
– Return to the dining hall at 5:50 for the Ugly Sweater run way contest.
