1ST ANNUAL PURIM COSTUME RUN By: Debbie Claggett, Sports, Recreation, & Aquatics Director The 1st Annual Purim Costume Run brought out people of all ages in creative costumes to run and walk in our 10K, 5K and 1K events! Close to 100 participants enjoyed the beautiful morning along the Rillito River Path! Awards were given not only for placement in the 5K and 10K, but also for the best costumes. This event is very family-friendly, offering the longer run events earlier and the 1K family event later to allow a parent to run, then walk/run with their kids later. Everyone enjoyed the story of Purim and got to sample the traditional Hamentaschen cookie and take a grogger home.
