Santa Fun Run Closed

An event for children 10 and Under. The run is FREE until online registration closes. Race Day registrations are $5. For security, when registering, you may want to only add your child's first initial of their first name since participant names are listed online. Kids will receive a bib, t-shirt and high quality medal (same design as races, but made of rubber material) upon completing the fun run.

1k Santa Fun Run

Santa Fun Run registration is NOW OPEN for children 10 and under. This event is also free of charge until online registration closes. Race Day registrations available for $5. This event will be on Friday at 7:30 pm. Parents MUST sign a waiver at packet pick-up on Friday night. There will be NO advance packet pick up for the Santa Fun Run.

Event Registration Limits

On-line registration is capped at 425 for the 5K; 75 for the 6 Hr; 85 for the 12 hr; and 75 for the 24hr.

NOTE: We will have race day registration available on a first come, first serve basis until we reach our runner caps. No race day registrations for relay teams.

Anyone registering after June 30th or after the on-line registration reaches its limits will not be guaranteed a shirt, a medal or any swag items. We will mark race bibs accordingly and discount each race (fun run excluded) by $10 if the event reaches its limits indicated above and shirts, medals, and swag items are not available. (This is to allow people to run the race, but maybe don't necessarily care about the shirts, medals, or swag)

Transfers and Deferrals

Transfer Policy

Up thru June 30th you will be allowed to transfer from one race to another or to transfer your registration to someone else. 

Cost: For race category changes it's $10 plus the difference in price for the race you originally registered for and the new race you are transferring to. We do not offer refunds if the race you initially registered for is more expensive than the race you are transferring to. If a race has reached capacity, no transfers into that race will be permitted. For transfers to another individual, they will pay the current registration prices, not necessarily what the person who is transferring paid, which is a common misnomer). It's advised to let the system handle this and not work out differences among yourselves. Runners can log into Race Roster to facilitate the transfer. (See website FAQ for all details). Please do not contact the race organizers to facilitate this as we will not be able to assist as it's too time consuming. No exceptions!


"No Sweat" Deferral Policy

At anytime up to June 30th you can defer your race entry to next year only. Cost: 5K $10; 6, 12 and 24 hr $30. Deferrals shall forfeit any race swag for current year. We will not accept deferral requests after June 30th. Just contact the race directors by June 30th to defer your entry to next year.

Send an email to info@runners4wellness.com if you are requesting to defer along with your confirmation you received from this registration website. We will confirm with you and you should be okay.

If you haven't already, we highly encourage you to review the race page on our website. It contains all the details about the event (More than what you get on this registration website).
