Hamilton Area Trail Runs

Toys For Tots Trail Run

Saturday, 12/19/09 @ 7:00am

Mercer County Park

Let’s face it…it’s the Saturday before Christmas and you still need to finish your Christmas shopping. Even if you thought you were done before Thanksgiving, we all know that there is always that one person you’ve forgotten or that relative that is so hard to buy for that you put it off until the very last minute. Well, what better way to beat the crowds than to get up early, come to the park and get in a run, then head over to the mall to get what you need? While the other last minute shoppers are still wiping the sleepies out of their eyes you’ll already be warmed up and ready for the real workout…not to mention the fact that you’ll smell like a gym locker which might be just what you need to give you a little extra space in that crowded store!

In the spirit of the holiday we do invite, but not require, anyone who attends to bring along with them a new, unwrapped toy which we will be donating on behalf of Hamilton Area Trail Runs to Marine Toys For Tots Foundation of West Trenton, NJ, who will then distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.

Of course, they say it’s always better to give than to receive but we’ll let you be the judge. Anyone who shows up with a donation will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to RoadRunner Sports. The drawing will be done immediately following our run so if you work it right you can even end your shopping frenzy by treating yourself to something nice for your next run!

Be there if you can and spread the word!

Merry Christmas
