This festive family holiday tradition welcomes runners and walkers of all ages and abilities to celebrate the season as a community. The 5K winds through West Hartford neighborhoods, lined with homes decorated for the holidays and festive shop windows. Bring the kids to participate in the HMF FitKids run- a ½ mile or one mile dash to Blue Back Square. All participants receive a warm knit beanie. High-fives from Santa, gourmet hot chocolate and holiday cookies await finishers for post-race merriment in Blue Back Square. Please help support neighbors in need to stay warm this winter – donations of new mittens, gloves, scarves and hats are being collected for The Town That Cares Fund, a program of the Town of West Hartford’s Department of Human and Leisure Services.
