There will be a great post-race food selection including the option of buying food & treats from Holiday Bazaar vendors. Also, we’ll be raffling off awards from the race sponsors. We will not be handing out overall or age group awards so that all proceeds can benefit Toys for Tots. The raffle will take place upstairs in the Marquette Park Pavilion Ballroom.
