Chill Your Cheeks 5K Registration Now Open 

Get your running shoes on and your most festive holiday gear ready! Yukon Parks and Recreation is bringing back the Chill Your Cheeks 5K on Saturday, November 18.

Held annually the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Chill Your Cheeks 5K coincides with the opening of Christmas in the Park, Yukon’s annual Christmas light display.  The race course starts and finishes at the Chisholm Trail Pavilion in Chisholm Trail Park.  More than 400 runners from all over the state and surrounding states descend upon Yukon for this great holiday run.

The Chill Your Cheeks 5K begins at 5:00 p.m. The course will close at 6:00 p.m. to open to drive thru traffic. Runners must be able to finish the 5K in that time frame.

In addition to the 5k race, the Jingle Walk begins at the Small Pavilion in Freedom Trail Park at 5:30 p.m. The Jingle Walk is a one-mile stroll through the lights of City Park and then back to Freedom Trail Park. Pets and strollers are welcome in the Walk, but not on the 5K course.

A $100 gift card to Red Coyote Running and Fitness is awarded to the Best Decorated Runner.  So get creative, get dressed up and have a chance at a $100 gift card!
