You don't need a calendar to know what time of year it is in New England—just a pair of running shoes. That's because RunRhody organizes holiday-themed events events throughout the year, ensuring fun-runners and racers alike always have 5K in which to complete. There's the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K for instance, plus the Guinness Tour de Patrick for St. Patrick's Day and the Jack o Lantern 5K during Halloween.
It's hard to say what's the best running season, but Christmas certainly adds something special to RunRhody's mix. During this season's races—including The Amica Downtown Jingle 5K, the New Bedford Santa Run, and the Worcester Jingle 5K—runners dress up in their holiday best, which might be an elf costume, a full Santa suit, or the clothing of someone who really, really thinks they'll get a pony this year. In addition to being fun, the runs also support charities such as Toys for Tots.
