Tinsel Trot 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk set for Saturday

Want to celebrate the Holidays and enjoy a little night time exercise at the same time? If so, the 7th Annual Tinsel Trot 2 Mile Fun Run/Walk is for you.

It takes place this Saturday night from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in a beautiful location: the Old Santee Canal Park in Moncks Corner.

This is a non-competitive, non-timed , no-awards run and walk. It’s all for fun!

It’s a family-friendly two-mile course through the holiday lights. Admission is just $10 plus a processing fee.

There is a party after the race with Santa Claus, a s’mores fire pit and  a jump castle for the kids.

All food proceeds will benefit local non-profit charities. Organizers say they’ll broadcast music through the entire course this year, and they encourage costumes. Youth groups are welcome, and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Last year, readers of The Berkeley Independent named the Tinsel Trot the Best Run/Walk Event in Berkeley County.

The address is Old Santee Canal Park,900 Stony Landing Road in Moncks Corner.

Organizers say it’s a rain-or-shine event. But pets are not allowed.
