TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Road Runners hosted their annual Christmas in the Park Race this morning at Deming park.

Those involved participated in a 3k and 5k race. There were 165 runners total. About 15 sponsors contributed to the race with Chick-Fil-A being their leading sponsor.

The race was a way to stay active, celebrate the holidays, and raise funds for children in need.

“As a board member of the road runners, it feels really good just to be able to give back to the community and to put this race on,” Race Director Brad Chaney said.

Half of the proceeds collected will be donated to Terre Haute Clothe-A-Child.
