Santas are coming back to town as Las Vegas’ favorite charity, Opportunity Village, has opened up its early bird registration for the 13th annual Las Vegas Great Santa Run. This event has become the largest gathering of Santa-clad runners in the world and will head back to Downtown Las Vegas on Saturday, December 2.
The early bird discount for this year’s fun run presents a limited-time offer for any Saint Nicks who register for the 5K or 1-mile Kris Kringle Jingle Walk now through September 4. The discounted price is $25, and free for children three and under. Paid registration includes a five-piece Santa suit, a commemorative medal and a goodie bag with items from a variety of event sponsors. Participants are also encouraged to bring their furry friends, who can join in on the fun for $10 and will receive a doggie bag full of canine treats. Registration is available on the Great Santa Run website.
The Great Santa Run raises funds and awareness for Opportunity Village’s ongoing programs and services. This allows unparalleled opportunities to enhance and support more than 2,000 Southern Nevada residents with intellectual disabilities and the families who love them.
The holiday event will return this year to compete against rival Liverpool and others for the international title as the No. 1 Santa run through the “World Santa Alliance.”
