Register early to save!

Celebrate the holidays running a fast 2.5 miler for a Claus! Join 900 fellow Santas on this festive holiday jog through the historic district of New London. The run starts and finishes on Bank Street and loops around historic Fort Trumbull State Park.

Entry includes a complete Santa suit along with a merry post-race party at Hot Rod Cafe including a free beer (over 21) or beverage. Get your Santa on in style! Decorate, embellish, bedazzle or jolly-up your Santa suit – awards will be provided for the most festive adult and child costume.

A 1/2 mile fun run will be offered for kids ages 2-11 before the main race. All participants get their own (kid-sized) Santa suit!

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Covenant Shelter of New London, an emergency shelter for families in need. Please also consider a donation of paper goods (paper towels, napkins, toilet paper etc.) to help with urgent needs of the shelter.
