Countdown to Race Day: December 05, 2020

Race Status Update

To adhere to public health guidelines for COVID-19 we are making modifications to the event to ensure the safety of all participants, staff, and volunteers. One of which includes having staggered start times, which will prolong the duration of the event. This will cause the streets to be closed for a longer time downtown and will have a greater impact on the downtown community. In order to reduce the impact on the surrounding community and still produce a safe and fun event for everyone, we have decided to change the date and location for the 2020 Run Santa Run Madison event to McKee Farms Park in Fitchburg on December 5th. Permits have been approved by the city and we are proceeding with planning for this event!

Participants who have already registered for the event will have the option to transfer to the new location, transfer to the virtual event, or receive a refund. An email has been sent to all registered participants with further details on making a decision, with a deadline of November 2nd.

We thank you all for your continued support and cooperation during these times and we hope to see you in your most festive attire in Fitchburg on December 5th!

  • STEP #1: Decide whether you want to run or walk as a Santa, Elf, Abominable Snowman or our brand new Holiday Penguin.
