About the event
The race is held to benefit the Hall Township Food Pantry.
Whether you are looking for a serious 5K race, or just a fun holiday event to burn some of the Turkey Day calories, Santas On The Run is an event you don’t want to miss.
Each participant will receive a lighted Santa Hat and Beard. Pre-registrants get their choice of a Hoodie, sweatshirt, or Long Sleeve T-Shirt. The value of the swag alone is worth more than the cost of registration.
The gun goes off to start the race/walk at 10:00AM on Saturday November 25th at JFK School in Spring Valley (999 N Strong Ave).
Day of registration and packet pick up will be open from 8:30-9:30AM.
For the serious runners, the course is a certified measured 5K. It is mostly flat with two gentle hills. The race will be chip timed with computerized results, and awards will be given to: Overall Male and Female Top Finishers, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to the following age groups: 6 and under, 7-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 and over. The awards will be Christmas ornaments.
There will be water/goodie stops at miles 1 and approximately 1.7. Traffic control will be provided to keep our runners safe.
For walkers and runners that are out to have some fun, in addition to the typical water stops, we will feature Holiday goodie stops (cookies, candy and HOT CHOCOLATE), and at the end of the race…… there is more.
In addition to the monetary proceeds of the race going to the Hall Food Pantry, in the Holiday spirit we are asking participants to donate non-perishable items and we have an incentive.
For each two non-perishable items a participant donates, their name will be entered into a drawing for prizes and gift certificates donated by our event sponsors. Bring 4 non-perishables, and your name goes in twice, 6 three times…... The more you donate, the more chances you have to win. Will it be worth it? You betcha.
As the race draws closer, we will announce the various prizes that will be available with the raffle.
Once again we have a request for the Big Guy (Santa) to be there to start the race and possibly hand out awards.
And check us out and follow us on Facebook Page. As our prize list grows, we’ll be updating the Facebook and Website pages. https://www.facebook.com/SantasOnTheRun2016/
