Additional Notes

Chip Timing provided by Agape Timing
No Santa Claus suits allowed for runners
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 Concord High School Parking Lot by Main Office at 1:00.

If you park at Carolina Mall (Staples and Food Court entrance), we will shuttle you back after the race.

Buses will transport from Concord High School Parking lot beginning at 11 am to the start line and will also take runners back to the school from the finish line after the awards ceremony. The school has more parking area. Remember to get there early. The school location is here.

After the race, the buses will shuttle you from McGee Park back to the Mall and Concord High School parking lot.
