Description

The Santa Sprint is a racing event that raises money for needy children during Christmas. All money, donations, and gift cards collected are used to purchase gifts, clothes, toys, and much more off of the kids' Christmas Wish Lists. a boy and a girl from the Elementary-, Middle-, and High School levels plus any siblings and any special requests. On average, we fill the Wish Lists of 15-24 less-fortunate children in the area. Your participation and generosity helps us do this.

Traditionally a 1-Miler for the first 14 years, we have now added a 5k event. Runners, Walkers, and Chair Athletes may choose one event or the other OR BOTH! Special pricing available to those registering to do both events. ALL participants receive a baggie of treats, a ceramic-fired Christmas ornament and jingle bells for their shoes as well as the option to purchase a race shirt. Participants are encouraged to dress up in the holiday spirit and to stick around for the parade immediately after the awards.

All 5k participants are eligible to win one of over 100 of our beautifully hand-crafted Christmas trophies in the Run, the Walk, or Handcycle/Chair Divisions.

All 1-Mile participants are eligible to win one of our 20 ceramic-pottery trophies or age group pottery medallions. Due to the limited number of awards in the Mile, all Milers will earn a finishing medal.

Register for both events and SAVE $10.00!!!

All participants are eligible for one of the 50+ Door Prizes! We offer some refreshments including hot dogs, Domino's pizza, Donley's Delicious Delights homemade cookies, and hot cocoa! 

Participants are invited to walk up town (about 1/4 mile away) visit all of the little shops and watch the Christmas Parade!
