    Your favorite festive holiday tradition!
Countdown to Race Day: December 25, 2020

Race Status Update

We have been working diligently to determine how to effectively proceed with hosting the Run Santa Run 5K Fitchburg event in a safe manner for our participants, staff, and volunteers. We have already changed the location of the event to ensure we would be adhering to public health guidelines and practicing all recommendations. However, we feel it would be irresponsible of us to proceed with the event with the new Executive Order #10 that limits the size of outdoor gatherings. Therefore, we are deeply saddened to be announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Run Santa Run 5K.

This is not the news we want to be sharing with all of you as we know so many of you were looking forward to this festive family tradition - and trust us, we were too! We empathize with your disappointment and we are immensely grateful for your patience and support over the past few months. We ask for your understanding during these critical times for our organization. But for now, it's important that we are prioritizing the safety of all participants, staff, and volunteers.

All registered participants will be transferred to the virtual Run Santa Run 5K event. Further details have been emailed to all participants registered for the in person event. Thank you again for your understanding. We're looking forward to celebrating the holiday with you virtually this year and can't wait to see you all again in 2021!

  • STEP #1: Decide whether you want to run or walk as a Santa, Elf, Abominable Snowman or our brand new Holiday Penguin.
  • STEP #2: Get your costume. We’ll help with character shirts and hats or accessories.
  • STEP #3: Run or walk the 5K and have a good time making sure to soak in all the holiday fun!
  • STEP #4: Enjoy the North Pole Post-Race party at Hop Haus Brewing Company at a time that works for you!
