Toys for Tots cross country run set for Dec. 8

From West Texas Running Club:

Lubbock, Texas - Lace up your trail running shoes and bring a new unwrapped toy to the 2012 WTRC Toys 4 Tots Cross Country Run.  The West Texas Running Club (WTRC) is helping the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve collect new, unwrapped toys to distribute to less fortunate children in our community. A new toy at Christmas delivers a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters and helps them experience the joy of Christmas and assists them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

The WTRC Toys 4 Tots Cross Country Run features a 1 Mile Kids Fun Run and a 4 Mile Cross Country Run. The 1 Mile Fun Run is an out and back course on a flat section of Mae Simmons Park. The 4 Mile run is on a multi-loop course full of challenging hills and uneven terrain. Online registration expires on Thursday, December 6th, at 6 p.m. There is no race day registration. The cost is $5 for WTRC members and all children 12 and under and $15 for non-members. Bib/Chip pickup will be at the Mae Simmons Community Center, 2004 Oak Ave. until 9:30 a.m.
