WESTFIELD – Westfield’s annual winter fun run returns to Grand Park Saturday, when participants race their way through the third annual Melt the Trail 5K walk/run.

This year’s event also features a 10K run option for the first time.

“Our Valentine’s Day-themed fun run/walk is becoming quite a tradition for runners and walkers alike,” said Melody Jones, parks director. “We look forward to everyone coming out and participating in another great winter event!”

“Our race is chip-timed, includes a long sleeve tech t-shirt *, and is fun for the whole family,” said Emily Clark, community and event manager for the Parks Department. “It provides a chance to win prizes, encourages valentine themed-wear and has goodies at the finish line!”

The race begins with staggered starts at 9 a.m., with packet pick-up beginning at 7:30 a.m. in the Grand Park Events Center, 19000 Grand Park Blvd.
