The inaugural Scarecrow Festival 5K run/walk on Sunday morning began a day of fall activities for the Village of Oxford’s annual Scarecrow Festival. The family-friendly race began and ended on Hudson Street and took racers through village neighborhoods and on to the Polly Ann Trail.
A percentage of the proceeds benefited the Oxford High School Varsity Cheer Team.
There was also a one-mile race option after the beginning of the 5k. The races were sponsored by the Oxford DDA and Homegrown Brewery. – Jim Newell
