Weekend Buzz: As the Weather Gets Chilly, the Fun Offerings are Hot

The McKinney Convention & Visitors Bureau offer us a plethora of activities this weekend.

Crape Myrtle Trails Run (Saturday): It’s going to be a cold morning, but what better way to get warm than a run or walk with the family? Serious runners will enjoy a certified, fast, 5K course, complete with chip timing by Run On of Texas. Family runners/walkers can tackle the 1-mile course, and enjoy many new family-fun activities near the starting gate at Craig Ranch’s Cooper Fitness Center. Lots of prizes, music and smiles! McKinney ISD schools with the most participants may wind up with a coach getting to kiss a pig, too! On-site registration is Saturday at 7:30 a.m., 1-mile fun run at 8:30 a.m. and 5K at 9 a.m.
