We’ll run (or walk) through the beautiful east-side Evansville residential neighborhoods, and you may just see friends and neighbors (and carolers), Evansville’s own The Boom Squad, and Evansville Mounted Police (or is that Central Park Rangers?) cheering you along. Stick around a bit after for award presentation while you enjoy Donut Bank donut balls, apples or bananas from Houchin Industries, and hot chocolate or coffee.

Prizes are available for the jolliest of Santa suits. We encourage embellishing your full five piece Santa suit you’ll pick up FRIDAY, 12/3 at Eykamp Scout Center, 11A-7P or before the race Saturday.

HURRY, registration goes up to $30 this Friday!
