About This Activity

The 1st annual Tacky Tinsel Color Trot will take place on a scenic, 5 mile loop during the peak of Christmas season on December 5, 2015.  Run through the beautiful Hodges Gardens State Park and, after many beautiful wooded curves and hills, run past Hodges lake, and to the finish.  As you run, walk, or cartwheel your way around the loop in your ugly Christmas sweater, you will be bombarded by Christmas color bombs!  The event will be a day of family fun complete with music, drink and food vendors, and an ugly sweater contest. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall, for those of you who are competitive!  Each race packet includes race bib, t-shirt, and promotional information.  The kids 1/2 mile dash will begin at 3:00, and a medal will be provided with each child's race packet.  This race will benifit a local charity, the Karen (Kay) Grimes cancer fund.  Karen (Kay) Grimes is a wonderful woman of the local community.  Unfortunately, Kay has been diagnosed with throat cancer, and we would love to help!  There will be a $2 gate fee upon entry for parking.  This $2 will also allow you to stay after the race to see the beautiful Hodges Gardens Christmas lights, which will come on between 5:00 and 5:30 pm.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Don't forget....come TACKY!!!
