If the 13.1 miles is a little more than you are ready for, you can complete in another race. There are five racing events: The half Marathon, 10k Road, 10k Trail Run, 5k Road, and 5k Trail Run.

Prizes include the homemade alligator head trophy awarded to top finishers in several categories. Other prizes will be given to the Best dressed Santa. Don’t be afraid to get festive!
