Tis The Season: Monticello's Holiday 5K Classic

The holiday season is in full swing in Charlottesville!

This weekend Monticello hosted the Holiday 5K Classic, a fun and festive affair. 

Liz Blaine and Mark Lorenzoni started the race from the east side of the house.  We wound around the West Lawn and gardens and down the mountain, then we ran a portion of the Saunders-Monticello Trail and finished at the Visitor Center. 

While running down the mountain, the simultaneous views up to Montalto (in front) and down to Charlottesville (to the side) were fantastic. What a great way to get in the holiday spirit!
