The North Park Santa Run will be held on Sunday December 15th. It will start at Milestone Running Shop ( North Pole) and will take you on a Holiday journey through North Park where you will visit three local breweries and a beer bar on Santa’s list. Santa’s will be visiting Mike Hess Brewing, Tiger Tiger, The Original 40 Brewing and Young Hickory for a total distance between 3-4 mile finishing at Milestones Running Shop to celebrate with pizza and beer!
With registration all runners will receive will receive a full Santa suit, Santa Sack (to carry your presents) and small toys to hand out to children along their 4 – 5 mile journey. Ho, Ho, Ho here is the rundown of how it works
Runners (Santa’s) will be divided into 4 groups and visit all 4 locations taking different routs. Santa’s will enjoy a pint that is prepaid at each location resting for about a half hour before running to the next stop on Santa’s list. When you register please select a group you wish to belong to. It is necessary for us to have 30-40 Santa’s per group so we may have to reassign you to balance the groups out. Below are the groups. Their routes will be published soon.
Krampus – Mike Hess Brewing, The Original 40 Brewing, Tiger Tiger Tavern, Young Hickory and Milestones Run Shop
Santa– The Original 40 Brewing, Tiger Tiger Tavern, Young Hickory, Mike Hess Brewing, Milestones Run Shop
Kringle– Tiger Tiger Tavern, Young Hickory, Mike Hess Brewing, Original 40 Brewing, Milestone Run Shop
Grinch– Young Hickory, Mike Hess Brewing, The Original 40 Brewing, Tiger Tiger, Milestone Run Shop
Each group will be assigned a leader and a different course to reach the stops. Along the way Santa’s will hand out presents to children and spread some holiday cheer. When they arrive at their destinations they will chill out Santa style and drink a pint (no payment necessary pints are included in registration). After about a half hour the group leader will gather the Santa’s and run to the next location. After visiting all 4 locations Santa’s will head back to Milestone Running Shop (North Pole) and share their memorable experiences and photos with all the other Santa’s while enjoying food and refreshments (can you say beer Santa)! This is not a race but a fun run. You will not receive a time. It is a great time to have fun, spread holiday cheer and take some really fun photos!
