Meadow Brook Runs will return for its 18th year on Saturday, Dec. 15.
The race boasts itself as having more prizes than any other race with gift certificates from more than 120 restaurants in the Highway 280 area — from Amoré Ristorante Italiano and Annlyce’s Bake Shop to Dale’s Southern Grill and Daylight Donuts, from Fish Market and Fresh Market to Mellow Mushroom and Momma Goldberg’s, from Savage’s and Satterfield’s to Zoe’s and Zaxby’s.
After-race Taste of 280 offerings will include food from Zaxby’s, The Fresh Market, Papa John’s, Publix, Golden Flake, Bogue’s, Bud’s Best Cookies, The Melting Pot, Buffalo Rock, Smoothie King and Starbucks.
Race participants will receive swag bags, and souvenir patriotic T-shirts will be provided by Aliant Bank, which will again use its 1100 Corporate Parkway location to serve as registration headquarters.
The 5K starts at 9 a.m. and the Fun Run at 10 a.m. Race day late registration will begin Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. on the patio behind the Aliant Bank. Walkers and pets on leash are welcome.
