12/07/2018- Break out that bathing suit one last time this year. The River Cities Community Pool is hosting their first Santa Speedo 5K Run/Walk tomorrow to benefit both the pool and the DAR Boys and Girls Club. Kasey Ermis is the Aquatics Director for RCCP. She says the run/walk is a kick-off event for their annual Da Yooper Winterfest.
And, as the name implies, participants are encouraged to dress the part for the Santa Speedo race. But, Ermis says if you’re not up to braving the elements in a swimsuit, any festive costume will do.
The cost to take part is $25 per person and day-of registration opens at the River Cities Community Pool at 8:30. Runners and walkers can join in on a free stretch-and-flex session with Santa and Mrs. Claus at 9:00 AM and the race starts at 10:00.
