Santas on the Run 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk @ John F. Kennedy School (west parking lot)
Nov 24 @ 10:00 am

This is a race you’ll be sorry if you miss, and 2018 will be even bigger and better than 2017. Check out the Race Facebook page to see all the nice comments and fun photos:  https://www.facebook.com/SantasOnTheRun2016/

Santas On The Run benefits the Hall Township Food Pantry. You can run this 5K for time, or you can do it partake in the Holiday spirit. Preregistration includes your choice of a Red: Long Sleeve T-Shirt, a crew sweatshirt or hoodie, a Santa Hat and Beard. All participants are encouraged to wear their hat and beard (and bells if you have them) in the run/walk, but it is not mandated.

The first 400 to preregister will also receive a 50″ x 60″ Santas On The Run fleece blanket. And if that’s not enough, we’re currently working on additional swag for those that preregister. Just like last year, the swag is worth the registration fee.

There will be water stops at approximately 1 & 2 miles, that will also include Holiday treats (cookies and candy).

The race will start and end in the parking lot of John F. Kennedy School (800 N. Richards, Spring Valley). The course is accurately measured and will be on paved city streets. The course is mostly flat with a few gentle uphills (in the 5K). Traffic control will be posted at all intersections to keep participants safe. Split times available at every mile.

The race will be electronically timed with results to be posted on the Starved Rock Runners web site.

As an added bonus, for each two non-perishable item an entrant brings to donate to the food pantry, their names will be entered into a raffle to be held after the race, with chances to win gift certificates and prizes from race sponsors.The more items you donate, the better your chances of winning (watch the web site as the list of potential winnings grows).

We’re looking to make the race, the prizes and the swag (for those who pre-register), even better than this year. The first 400 to sign up will receive a 50″ x 60″ Santas On The Run fleece blanket. We’re working on sweetening the deal with other swag. Stay tuned for details.

Awards will be given to the overall Male and Female finishers, as well as the top three finishers (Male and Female), in each of the following age groups: 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69 and 70 and over.

Packet pick up and race day registration will be available from 8:30AM until 9:30AM at John F Kennedy School. Day of registration is not guaranteed a shirt.

Registration is now open.
