The event starts at 3:30 p.m. It's a non-competitive (untimed) event to encourage people to start the new year with physical activity in the outdoors. Participants can choose to run or walk a 1.6-mile or a 3.6-mile trail course.

Advance registration is available for $15 at through Dec. 30. Advance registration includes a post-event hors d'oeuvres buffet at Fourwinds Resort, located inside Fairfax SRA, a commemorative patch and a $15 gift certificate to Tradewinds Restaurant at Fourwinds Resort.

Almost 200 people attended the inaugural event last year, according to Monroe Lake naturalist Jill Vance.

"I would love to see even more people, particularly kids, come out for the 2015 event," Vance said.

A bonfire at Bay View Shelter will keep people warm.

Each participant has the chance to win a gift certificate for the Indiana Running Company or a 2015 Indiana State Parks Annual Entrance Permit.

Admission to the property is free during winter.
