Costumes aren’t just for Halloween anymore! The Santa Shuffle 5k Run encourages (well, requires) you to throw on a cottony beard and a red suit for a run through Lincoln Park.
Be a part of this Saturday fun run for the fitness benefits or simply for the hilarious visual. Both are equally legitmate reasons to partake.
Every participant will be given a beard and red hat to wear during the race so hitting up Walgreens for the last minute disguise is unnecessary. The event also encourages runners of all skill levels to join the race (sorry, but I still don’t think I can bare the embarrassment of my nonexistent endurance). Motivation for the slow runners– awards will be given the person or group with the most creative Santa costume.
Join all the participants after the event at McGees Tavern & Grille located at 950 West Webster, Chicago, IL 60614. All participants 21 and over will receive a drink coupon and a free breakfast buffet! Score!
Register online here for $30, or register the day of the event for $40.
The run goes down in Lincoln Park between Lake Shore Drive and Clark Street. So register and hit the streets at 9 a.m., if only just for the free breakfast and Santa hat!
