It’s no secret that Sioux Falls runners are a charitable group — they raise nearly $10,000 every Thanksgiving for The Banquet. And most race fees include a donation to some charity or another.
If you want to support the cause, and have a little fun, join the holiday run tomorrow night. Here are the details, sent to me by the organizers:
What: 7th Annual Holiday Run
Where: JL Beers, Phillips Avenue
When: 6:30 p.m., meet to begin the 3-mile run at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20
Details: Bring a freewill donation, dress in holiday fun gear, and do a short run with like-minded folks. The run goes from JL Beers to The Silver Moon Bar for a pit stop (clearly this puts the “fun” in fun run). Then a jaunt to the top of the observation tower at Falls Park, and a return to downtown.
So let me get this straight … meeting friends to run, raising money for a great cause, stopping for a cocktail and running through the gorgeous holiday light display at Falls Park?
Sounds about perfect.
