AVON – The second annual Reindeer Games 5K on Sunday brought reindeer runners of all ages to the Avon Driving Park for a dash through the snow.
About 90 people attended the race, with 68 runners testing their mettle on the course through the fitness trails at the Downs.
Catherine Staley, 8, of Geneseo, breezed through the race with an incredible time of 20:49.
The Avon Soccer Club, Allstate Insurance, Village of Avon, Avon Boy and Cub Scouts, Sweet Arts Bakery and the Cake Place all pitched in to make the run possible.
The money raised from the event will fund the candlelight luminaries for next year. The dwindling tradition rekindled this year due to the collective efforts of many friends, neighbors and businesses, as well as Village first responders and the Avon Village Board of Trustees.
