Hoping to work off those extra Thanksgiving pounds before the Christmas binge?
You might consider running the Gator Holiday Classic 5K this Sunday.
Perry Hall High School's Parent-Teacher-Student Association, in partnership with Running Maryland, is sponsoring the event, scheduled for 9 a.m. on Dec. 9 at Perry Hall High School, located at 4601 Ebenezer Rd.

Online registration is available on the Running Maryland website, and at the event on Dec. 9.
