The new Christmas-themed night race was organized by DK Races & Events, which is operated by Kelly Treat and Dustin Haywood.

“I enjoy the competition side of it (organizing a race) and seeing people being active,” Treat said. “We also like to give a gift that excites people and make sure that they have fun and that the race is family orientated.”

The gift for this race was a headlamp that could be used during the race and participants also were given jingle bells to wear on the course that was lit up as much as it could be for the holidays.

Medals and trophies also were given to top finishers in the race.

All the money raised from the race went toward the Coshocton County Firefighter’s Toy Chest.

“We encourage people to look for other events and races by us in 2016,” Treat said.

About the Author ()

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
