Q:  Am I guaranteed a race t-shirt?
A:  No.  If you register after Monday, May 4th, you are not guaranteed a race t-shirt.

Q:  Is this a timed race?

A:  No. Christmas in May is an untimed fun run/walk.

Q:  Are strollers allowed?

A:  Yes! We do ask that all stroller participants line up at the back for the safety of all participants.

Q:  Do kids under 12 need to register for the 5K?

A:  No. Kids under 12 may participate for free. All kids under 12 will receive a free finishers medal. If your child under 12 would like a race shirt, shirts are available for $10 each.

Q:  Do kids under 12 need to register for the Kids Run?

A:  Kids under 12 do not need to register for the Kids Run.  However, we ask that each child's parent or legal guardian sign a participation waiver for their child prior to the kids race.

Q:  Who may participate in the Kids Run?

A:  Only children under 12 are allowed to participate.

Q:  Are bikes or scooters allowed?

A:  No. All participants (including kids under 12) must either be running, walking, or in a stroller.

Q:  Are dogs allowed?

A:  No. There will be many small children at this race. Sometimes small children and dogs make each other nervous, so we have decided not to allow dogs at the race.

Q:  What organization does Christmas in May 5K benefit?

A:  Christmas in May 5K is a fundraiser for Great Escape Preschool @ Littleton United Methodist Church.

Great Escape Preschool is also holding a children's book drive on race day to benefit the Colorado Preschool Program.
