(WBNG Binghamton) On Saturday, November 10, 2012 – Run or walk the Snowzilla 5K to kick off the Holiday Season.

According to a news release:

This race coincides with Owego’s Holiday Showcase Day.  Help raise funds to bring big, fun attractions to Owego for the Lights on the River Festival on December 7. Coming this year are a Giant Snowglobe and an ice skating rink at the Gateway Community Park Deck.  We’re also planning ahead to bring the Snowzilla Toboggan Slide to Owego in 2013!  This inflatable toboggan slide is for adults and children and simulates a slide down a snow covered hill. It's a massive attraction and riders board a snow tube for the ride to the bottom of the slide. There is only one Snowzilla attraction in the United States and it's coming to Owego for the Lights on the River Festival, in 2013.

The Snowzilla 5K will begin on Saturday, November 10, at 9:00 am. There will also be a Kids' 1.6K Run at 11:00 am. Pre-registration is $15 and Kids' Run is $7. Both runs will be competitive and prizes will be awarded in age/gender categories.  All runners will received a free embroidered knit hat, bottles of water, a free ride coupon for one of the attractions, and a variety of refreshments after the race.

Registration and all the information you need can be found on www.snowzilla5k.com  or call 607-687-7440.
