About the Race
Coming back to Loveland for 2019 holiday season! In partnership with Santa Cops of Larimer County, the “Toy Drop 25K, 10K, 5K and 1 Mile” is an event you won’t want to miss. This event will generate funds to help support the children of our county.
Santa Cops of Larimer County works to provide toys for children in need within the community. The effort by this program enhances the relationship between children and law enforcement during Christmas and throughout the year. These are children who come from all walks of life. Last holiday season Santa Cops wrapped and personally delivered 6894 gifts to 2298 children. Because of the generosity of many, we were able to touch 923 families within our community! This is just one of the pieces to this organization that we fell in love with and knew that you would too!
You can expect this race to have the holiday feel of the season. There will even be a few unique elements to the race that are unlike anything in this area. Specifically, we are requesting that everyone start the race by dropping a new toy in one of the donation bins. We could not be more excited to link arms with our local law enforcement to host this race again for 2018!
