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 Senior Center at 1:00.

Parking is limited at the Senior Center.  The back side of First Baptist Church has plenty of parking.  If you park at Carolina Mall (Staples and Food Court entrance), we will shuttle you back after the race.

Parking in front of the Senior Center will be available. 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. Senior Center location here.

The preferred parking area is at First Baptist Church in the back parking lot (Deal Street entrance).  Address:  200 Branchview Dr SE, Concord, NC 28025 

Buses will transport from First Baptist Church beginning at 11 am to the start line and will also take runners back to the church from the finish line after the awards ceremony. The Church has more parking area. Remember to get there early. The Church location is here.

After the race, the buses will shuttle you from McGee Park back to the Senior Center or First Baptist Church.
