This 41 year old tradition of Webster, NY was started by Jim May, former English Teacher in Webster. Jim May started this event simply as a practice run for his Cross Country Team, as a way for them to get a workout on Thanksgiving Day. As the years progressed, the event grew to what it is today. Jim May's former XC Runner, Dave Boutillier, took over the reigns of the race in the late 90's under his Race Directing Company, YellowJacket Racing. Each year this race reminds Dave and many other former Webster residents of his youth and running this event every year.

4.4 Mile Course
This route is the exact route Jim formed 40 years ago. Due to long standing tradition it has not been changed nor altered. Please note, it may wind up a little less than 4.4 (more like 4.12) but due to its long standing tradition of being stated as 4.4 miles take it as you ran a really good 4.4 miler. The last 1/4 mile is on grassy trails in Webster Park.
2.5 Mile Course
This fun run starts at 10:10AM at the corner of Holt and Lake. The fun run finishes the same way the 4.4 miler does. The fun run will be chip timed.
