This fun low-key event is not your everyday ORRRC race. The Gift Exchange 5k is a fun way to celebrate the holidays through running. Instead of an entry fee, all participants are to bring a wrapped gift (valued between $5-$7). At the end of the race, we will have a giant gift exchange (hence the name of the race) among all participants.
WHEN: Saturday, December 9 at 10:00 a.m.

FEES: There are no traditional entry fees for this race. Instead of an entry fee, all participants are to bring a wrapped gift valued between $5 to $7 to be entered in the gift exchange.
AWARDS: All participants will receive a gift as part of the gift exchange. Overall male and overall female winners will receive a special gift in addition to the exchange gift. Please note: do not bring alcoholic beverages or adult gifts to this race – this is a family-friendly event and children may receive your gift during the exchange.
