10/21/2020 - Local city officials are concerned with the number of increased cases of Covid-19 in Franklin County.  They have suggested we halt in-person registration at the current number of participants. 

As of today, we are closing registration for the two events and making it into one event that will begin at 8:30 am on Saturday December 5.  We will also make changes to the start / finish area in order to comply with the health protocols to make this a safe event for all.

We will still be able to offer a virtual option.

Please note, that should the situation continue to deteriorate, city officials have said they reserve the right to revoke the approval for an in-person race and request the race format change to a virtual event.

The Santa Race 5K will be held in Gahanna on Saturday, December 5, 2020. The start and finish area will take place on Mill Street at the beautiful Creekside Plaza.
