Additional Notes

Chip Timing provided by Agape Timing

We do not want the kids waiting on the parade to see multiple Santa Claus running down the road. Santa Claus comes at the end of the parade. So please, no suits it is for the kids.


Logistics for this race is complicated as the streets are blocked for parade traffic and Parade Floats. You are encouraged to find your own way to the start line if possible. The last shuttle leaves the Senior Center at 1:00.

If you can find a way to park near the start and arrange for someone to bring you back to your vehicles, this will allow you more freedom to come and go. As parking is limited at the finish.

Directly in front of the Senior Center will NOT be available as it is needed for the finish and the bus turn around. Park in the noted areas but not in the grass.  There are other places near, within a short walk. Try to enter the Senior Center via the lower parking lot. As the bus will be using the upper lot.
