Run Santa Run 5K

Sat December 5, 2020 Fitchburg, WI 53711 US
Run Santa Run Has Gone Virtual!

We have been working diligently to determine how to effectively proceed with hosting the Run Santa Run 5K Fitchburg  event in a safe manner for our participants, staff,  and volunteers. We have already changed the location of the event to ensure we would be adhering to public health guidelines and practicing all recommendations. However, we feel it would be irresponsible of us to proceed with the event with the new Executive Order #10 that limits the size of outdoor gatherings. Therefore, we are deeply saddened to be announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Run Santa Run 5K.

This is not the news we want to be sharing with all of you as we know so many of you were looking forward to this festive family tradition - and trust us, we were too! We empathize with your disappointment and we are immensely grateful for your patience and support over the past few months. We ask for your understanding during these critical times for our organization. But for now, it's important that we are prioritizing the safety of all participants, staff, and volunteers.

All registered participants will be transferred to the virtual Run Santa Run 5K event. Further details have been emailed to all participants. Thank you again for your understanding. We're looking forward to celebrating the holiday with you virtually this year and can't wait to see you all again in 2021!

Covid-19 Update: We are currently monitoring the Covid-19 situation and are adhering to guidelines set by the Wisconsin Department of Public Health and CDC. At this time we are still proceeding with planning for this event. Should this event be cancelled due to the pandemic, your options will include: defer to 2021, participate in the virtual event, or donate your entry fee.

It’s Madison’s favorite Christmas tradition with four easy steps!

STEP #1: Decide whether you want to run as a Santa, an Elf, Abominable Snowman or *new this year* Holiday Penguin

STEP #2: Get your costume.  We’ll help with shirts, hats, and accessories!

STEP #3: Run or walk the 5K and have a good time making sure to soak in all the holiday fun!

STEP #4: Enjoy the North Pole Post-Race party at Hop Haus Brewing Company at a time that works for you!

This is a timed event. Average times for each character will be taken - who do you think will be the fastest - Abominable Snowman? Elf? Santa? Holiday Penguin?
