…And they’re off! The Wixom Downtown Development Authority (DDA) will host its annual Wixom Derby Day on Saturday, May 4th. The starting line for the 9:00 am 5K and 10K walk/run is in our Downtown’s Sibley Park. Get your fillies and colts ready for the 1 Mile Fun Run and the littlest ponies will race their horses on the Tot Trot course.
Placement medals will go to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the 5K and 10K, male and female, excluding the overall winners, who will be awarded a prize yet to be determined. Lastly, Tot Trot participants will receive a Derby Day temporary tattoo. For more details, please visit the registration website.
All runners will receive a complimentary wristband for Downtown discounts at participating businesses. This is a stroller- and pet-friendly race. Come join the fun and don’t forget your Derby Day Hat! #downtownwixom
