Join the Nichols Improvement Association as we present the 31st holiday classic, on a scenic rolling hill 5K course through the heart of the Nichols community, with one of the best race finishes in Fairfield County.

Walkers are welcomed to participate in a our newly introduced walk on the rolling hills of Nichols. Stroll, walk, push the kids...everyone is welcome!

COVID PROCEDURES. Due to COVID regulations our 5K race will look slightly different this year. We are limiting the race to 250 participants and will have staggered start times. If awards are presented, they will be limited and presented at a later date. Please note that the event is subject to change depending in local/state guidelines.


Proceeds help support community events & maintaining our property, ball fields,
