Not feeling up to a half marathon (21K), then choose the 5K option and you can still join in on our Christmas-In-July party.

In order to get ahead of the summer heat, start time for the half marathon will be 7:00 a.m. The start time for the 5K will be 7:30 a.m.

Hey! It's Christmas in July. You get presents!

Our shirts and medals are the best ever! We went out of our way to custom design race medals that are unlike any other you’ve ever seen!

For 2020, Santa is bringing you sublimated short sleeve tech shirts! These beauties are so comfortable to wear in warm weather.

Each year we give out awesome medals. For 2020, we will reveal our medal soon. Check out these samples from past years:
