A day of family fun on the Lois Creek trails, December 29

This is a fun, family event which invites you to work off some of that holiday over-indulgence by skiing, snowshoeing, walking or running on the Lois Creek Trails.

There are three distances offered as well, from 2.5 to 6 km.

This is a scatter event where participants run to various checkpoints located along the Lois Creek Trail network. This event is fun for the whole family — you choose your challenge by selecting the number of checkpoints you want to collect. First person or team back is the winner.

The three courses are Top Turkey – approximately six km course : 14 – 16 control points; Gobbler – approximately four km course : 8 – 12 control points; Yard Fowl – approximately 2.5 km course ; 7 – 10 control points.

Check in begins at 11 a.m. at the Trail Street entrance to the Lois Creek Trails. The race should start at noon.
