Why

Over the past few years, City of San Jose funding for these holiday traditions has decreased to almost nothing. Please help us to raise money to continue these amazing family traditions that have been around for decades.  We want to start a new tradition in downtown San Jose; one about community, family, faith and fun. Celebrate with us by enjoying a family fun run!

How

Participate by registering, volunteering or donating to the event. If you are registering, we encourage you to wear your Santa costume. We hope in a few years to be the largest run with Santa’s in costume. Last year we sold out one week vefore race day. This year we have raised the cap to 7,500 participants. Join us!

You! Your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors. The more the merrier.
