Santa 5k

Where: Downtown Burlington

As many as 2,500 Santas are expected to participate on Saturday, December 8 in the CHCH Santa Burlington 5K, Canada’s Largest All-Santa Race! This is a great family event and a great way to celebrate the season. All participants receive a Santa suit to be worn during the race. Santa suits are mandatory. And although the event is untimed, anyone not wearing the entire suit – including the beard – will be disqualified. The Santa suits are lightweight and made for running. Sizes include Men, Women, and Children.

Anyone bringing a friend to register will receive a Free Gift!  So bring a friend or the whole family and plan to spend the day in beautiful downtown Burlington, Ontario. Enjoy the variety of shops and restaurants including Emma’s Back Porch, HoneyWest, and Wendal Clark’s where they will be offering post-race breakfast and lunch specials to all our CHCH Santa Burlington participants.

The CHCH Santa Burlington 5K Run / Walk will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 8, 2018 outside City Hall on Brant Street in beautiful downtown Burlington, ON.


The NEW 1K Elf Run will start at 9 a.m. and run down and back on Brant Street. Anyone participating in the 5K may also take part in this family-friendly 1K event which is perfect for the kids or anyone not wishing to complete the 5K. Everyone registered for the 1K Elf Run will receive an elf hat and a finisher medal. All proceeds from the 1K will go to Easters Seals.
