Santa’s Toy Trot Race Canceled – Toy Drop-Off and T-Shirt Pickup  Still On For Sunday 12-15

Due to the predicted timing and duration of the winter storm, THE ROAD RACE PORTION of the WCRC Santa’s Toy Trot HAS BEEN CANCELED. HOWEVER since the goal of the event was to collect toys for Christmas, THE T-SHIRT PICK-UP and TOY DROP-OFF WILL STILL TAKE PLACE FROM 11:30 AM UNTIL 2:00 PM on Sunday December 15 at the Sweetsir School in Merrimac, MA. As always, the Merrimac Holiday Helpers will still be on site to accept your toys and start to match toys to deserving children. We’ll have snacks and hot chocolate on site. If the driving conditions permit, please consider stopping by for a few minutes to drop off your toy(s). This is a charity Christmas event, so given that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away it is not feasible to postpone to a later date. For more information, email toytrot@runthecircle.org.

The Winner’s Circle Running Club’s Santa’s Toy Trot 2 Mile, 4 Mile and 6 Mile Road Races and Santa’s Elves’ Fun Run for Kids will be run on Sunday December 15, 2013 at the Sweetsir School in Merrimac, MA. Proceeds to benefit the Merrimac Holiday Helper Program and Toys for Tots.
