Santa Run Goes VIRTUAL!
Your support of our virtual Santa Run has been overwhelming.
We are so grateful for your support and our regular virtual 5K is now sold out. We have created a new "Race Wrap Only" event that still registers you for the 5K and helps support our charities. 
For 8 years, the Santa Run Silicon Valley has supported the beloved traditions of Christmas in the Park and Downtown Ice with our fun, holiday event. The health and safety of everyone involved has always been our top priority. Now, as the world battles COVID-19, our concern for the running community has been heightened even further and is impacting every decision we make. For this reason and after discussions with local health experts the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation, who founded and produces the event, has made the determination that the Santa Run will go forward as a “virtual run”.
While we are saddened to not be able to see 5,000 participants in their holiday attire gather in downtown San Jose to celebrate this Christmas tradition together, the health and safety of our community comes first. We value your support and are working hard to make sure we deliver a great virtual experience along with some fun, festive race swag!
Join us for the 9th Annual Santa Run Silicon Valley - now Virtual - benefiting Christmas in the Park, Downtown Ice, and Reading Partners! This Virtual 5K Run/Walk is holiday fun for the whole family. Design your own course and complete your run in our festive race shirt or dressed as your favorite holiday character, and share your results and photos with us!
We will be holding a packet pick-up on December 18th & 19th at Sports Basement Sunnyvale, or you can select to have your packet shipped for $10.
