The EVL Half and 5K makes its way into town for the third year in a row. This is a fun-filled event, sure to get feet movin’ and hearts racin’. On Saturday, Oct. 29, the village will be filled with costumed runners competing in races of two distances.
Both the half marathon (11 a.m. start) and the 5K (11:15 a.m. start) begin and end in the heart of town at 5 Monroe Street. While the scenery in itself gives competitors something to look at along the way, add in an array of cool, scary and just plain fun costumes, and you’ve got yourself a memorable race and a great way to enjoy fall, Ellicottville-style.
All participants receive custom-designed medals, as well as men’s and women’s shirts. In addition, many Ellicottville merchants offer great discounts that weekend for runners, which athletes will receive in the race packet.
The after party is a blast with Ellicottville Brewing Company craft beer and many wonderful giveaway prizes from businesses around Ellicottville. In addition, costume awards will be given by Watson’s Chocolates for best group, best individual, funniest, scariest, most girly, best kid and best in show.
