Thanks for the Trails 5k

ECGA's Thanks for the Trails 5k Race on the Friday after Thanksgiving in Patton Park

ECTA is holding its Thanks for the Trails 5k and Kids Fun Run the day after Thanksgiving at Patton Park in Hamilton. Using a scenic and challenging course and offering great prizes, this will be an event for all!  In addition to cash (or gift certificates) for top finishers, and many other terrific prizes, there will be cash prizes for the teams (co-ed) with the most runners and that have the best score (on a traditional XC scoring basis).  TWe are building on the fine tradition enjoyed by so many for the last 10 years with Gabe's Run, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Gabe's Fund.  Whether you seek a personal record or camaraderie with old friends and rivals, this event is for you!
