What better way to bring on Christmas Cheer than to get the family together to race dressed up as Santa Clause? Join us for the Santa 5K, a fun run and walk for the whole family, winding through the Lincoln Park craft district of Duluth, MN.


Start and end at Wild State Cider, then finish off with a celebration at the taproom with Wild State Cider and Duluth Running Co. Your registration includes one free cider, a 5 piece Santa suit and a whole lot of cheer. 



Can I pick up someone else's packet & vice versa?

Yes, and Yes. We do not need to see ID, but be sure the other person knows you are picking up their packet for them.

You can pick up your packet on 12/10 from 10-6 pm at Duluth Running Co. or on race day (12/11) at Wild State Cider.

Where is packet pick-up located, and when can I pick mine up?

No, but we do expect participants to actively attempt finishing and not stop along the way. Awards begin at 11:00.

Is there a cut off time for how quickly I must finish the 5K?

Parking will be limited, so we suggest arriving early and parking on nearby streets and lots. No parking at the Wild State parking lot.

Where can I park on race day? Can I park at Wild State Cider?
Are there age limits to participants? Do I have to be 21?

No age limits or requirements! Family-friendly event and everyone is welcome! to participate.

The Santa suit is a one-size-fits-all adult suit. We can't guarantee fit. Kids should plan to wear the jacket only to avoid tripping hazards.

Will the Santa Suit fit me? What about fitting my kids?
