About This Activity

A jolly jog (5K run/walk and 1-mile run/walk) through the streets of historic Stoughton during the annual Victorian Holiday Weekend. This family-friendly event is hosted by the Yahara River Grocery Cooperative and benefits two Stoughton-area food pantries and the Co-op. Dress up in holiday fare and enjoy beautiful Stoughton!

The course starts in the McFarland State Bank parking lot in downtown Stoughton, across the street from the Yahara River Grocery Co-op.  It travels along the Yahara River and part of a bike path before moving into one of Stoughton's historic neighborhoods. The race finishes back at the McFarland State Bank parking lot. Enjoy some great post-race snacks, beverages and door prizes (and a chance to warm up!) inside the Yahara River Grocery Co-op.

Race Time:  10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 7
Race fee:  $20 early registration by Nov. 26, $25 after Nov. 26
