Dec 01, 2019 10:01AM ● By Marilee Burrell

The seventh annual Holiday Hustle 5K and Kids 1K Reindeer Fun Run will take place December 8, 2019, at Mercy College. Participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite holiday costumes, as there will be prizes for best male, female and group costumes in addition to traditional race awards. 

The race is hosted by the Dobbs Ferry Youth Service Council, whose mission is to improve the quality of life of Dobbs Ferry’s young people, identify and address their needs, provide leadership, and enable adults and young people to work together. All proceeds will benefit the annual holiday gift drive for families in need.

The course will feature holiday decorations and music, and cookies and hot chocolate for all at the finish line. Participants in the 5K will receive a 5-by-7 photo with a choice of holiday backdrops, a long-sleeved T-shirt, and 1K runners will receive reindeer antlers and a gift bag. Present a race bib for 15 percent off at local restaurants.

Race day packet pickup is at 8 a.m. at Mercy College. The 5K will start at 9:30 a.m. in the college parking lot and will end in downtown Dobbs Ferry. It will be followed by the 1K, which will begin at Broadway and Cedar Street. Parking will be available at Mercy College, with shuttle service from the finish line back to the parking lot.
