Wagons Ho Ho Ho Hosts 2nd Annual Christmas in July 5k Race

July 26, 2020 8:00 am @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Wagons Ho Ho Ho, a beloved 501 (c)(3) Ohio-based nonprofit organization, is inviting the Central Ohio community to join in the second annual Christmas in July 5K Race and 1.8-mile Fun Run. In an effort to make it possible for children in dire need to know that there is love and support in their local community, Wagons Ho Ho Ho will expand its vision to give back beyond the traditional Wagons Build Day held annually in December.

The 5K and Fun Run will include a lively atmosphere with a special appearance from Santa Claus himself, music and the ultimate race goodie bag that promises to rival those found at traditional race events.

This year, due to massive cancellations as a result of the Pandemic, Wagons Ho Ho Ho is also offering an enhanced Virtual Run package. Runners can run prior to the race, before and/or at the actual race. As well, all runners that sign up to participate will be invited to run VIRTUALLY at the same date and same time, but near their homes, in safe locations. All runners this year, despite their choice of running options, will be awarded with a medal, a T-shirt and a goodie bag.

The fee to run or walk is $35, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit Wagons Ho Ho Ho and the organization’s effort to build over a thousand nostalgic wagons and fill them with a Christmas dinner for families in need throughout more than 20 Central Ohio counties.

The race will be held at Academy Park Trail, 1201 Cherry Bottom Rd., Gahanna 43230. Runners and walkers can sign up at: https://runsignup.com/wagonshohoho . Virtual running locations/courses can be provided to runners upon request.

The race will take place on Sunday, July 26th at 8 a.m. Sign up for participants is now open.
