The SANTA RUN presented by the GREENVILLE TRACK CLUB and BON SECOURS St. Francis Sports Medicine returns on Saturday, December 16, 2017. The event has moved back to its original venue - the KROC Center of Greenville, located at 424 Westfield Street. The run will use a downtown course similar to the one introduced in 2016. The mood will be more festive than ever and we hope to encourage spectators to come out and watch the awesome throng of costumed runners.
Anyone who has participated in the SANTA RUN is aware of its magical qualities. Put on a Christmas-themed costume and come on out. Join the army of Santas and Elves and witness a shocking display of amazingly tacky sweaters as we take to the streets of downtown. Spread the Joy!
PACKET PICK UP: Early packet pick up is Friday, Dec. 15, 2pm-7pm at the KROC Center, 424 Westfield Street. Race day packet pick up is 7:30am-9am at the KROC.
Course Features: The 5K course starts on Westfield Street at the KROC Center entrance, and proceeds north on Westfield to Broad Street. The course turns right on Broad, then left on River Street where runners will begin a gradual rise as they run north. The next turn is a right on College Street, then a right on Main Street. The 3/4 mile cruise down Main Street is entirely downhill. The course goes left on Augusta Street and left on Furman College Way before turning left into Falls Park. The remainder of the run is on the Swamp Rabbit Trail through Falls Park and the River Walk before finishing on the soccer field at the KROC Center.
Statistics: The total elevation gain is around 150′. The course consists of 75% roads and 25% paved paths. There are roughly 15 turns.


SWAG. ALL PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE A SANTA RUN MUG, perfect for your favorite holiday beverage (think HOT CHOCOLATE)! If you purchased ENTRY WITH SUIT, you will receive a complete SANTA SUIT including jacket, pants, belt, hat and beard. If you chose ENTRY ONLY, you will get a race bib, wristband, and the traditional SANTA RUN souvenir coffee mug but you'll need to supply your own holiday costume or incredibly tacky sweater. Sorry, we don't have kids costumes.
