It’s Madison’s favorite Christmas tradition and it’s so easy to join in the fun!

STEP #1: Decide whether you want to run as a Santa, an Elf, or Abominable Snowman.

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!

STEP #4: Enjoy the North Pole Post-Race party at local bars!

PINCH THE GRINCH: Beat the Grinch for a free slice of Ian’s pizza!
