WHAT DO YOU RECEIVE? Each participant will receive an Amphipod Hydrastrobe Handheld Flash Thermal 20oz Bottle (phew! That's a mouthful!). Say what? This hydration bottle made by Amphipod can turn into a flashing powerhouse when running in the dark. So just in case you really need a sip or two of water during this 5k, you'll have one at your fingertips. Literally. Oh yeah and let's not forget the hot chocolate, Christmas cookies, carolers, glow-sticks, bonfire and a special appearance by Santa and the ever-so-pretty Mrs. Claus.
PARKING Thanks to the Linda Vista Golf Course, we are able to use their parking lot for the race. The course has two lots; one main lot in front of the clubhouse and one behind the clubhouse. We are asking that everyone please carpool. With a limited number of spaces, only 100 cars will fit in the lot. There is no parking along Miller Creek Road. If the parking lot is full at the golf course, please park on Linda Vista Drive (about 100 meters from the golf course).
STAY BRIGHT & SAFE We strongly encourage the use of headlamps, flashlights and any other awesome, festive item you can find to light your way. Please have fun with your running outfit! Wear your best (or worst!) Christmas attire for this race. We also encourage the use of traction devices on your running shoes. We may have rain, ice, snow, all three or none of the above! Be prepared for all types of weather conditions.
COURSE DESCRIPTION The course is (3) one mile+ loops around the perimeter of the golf course. There will be luminaries around the entire course to light your way. The perimeter is almost entirely on pavement with a few areas on dirt. Please be mindful and stay off of the greens.
SO, ARE WE GETTING TIMED THIS YEAR? Yes! We'll be bringing timing back. The last three years were not timed but we've had some requests. So this year you'll have an official result at the end of this race.
FREE KIDS FUN RUN Have your children run with Santa at 6:15pm for this FREE kids fun run before the start of the 5k. No need to sign up! Please meet by the 5k Start Line at 6:10pm.
OH YEAH, AND LET'S NOT FORGET... Limit 300 participants. We’re sorry, but no refunds for this race.
