2nd Annual Santa Sprint & Reindeer Run
Dec 12, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
2nd annual Santa Sprint & Reindeer Run benefiting the Texarkana Museums System will take place at 9 a.m. on December 12, 2015. The race will begin and end at the historic Ace of Clubs house in Downtown Texarkana.
How the Santa Sprint 5k works:
Enter your family, a group of your friends, or just yourself as a ‘Santa’ for the 5k race. Comfortable Santa Claus type clothing is encouraged and will add to the fun race atmosphere. Participants are not required to run and may choose to walk/run, power walk, or simply walk. As you register and socialize, you will see the beautiful seasonal decorations at the Ace of Clubs House which were done by local philanthropic organizations and decorators. The decor will be provided by Pi Beta Phi, Gamma Sigma Gamma, P.E.O Chapter V, William Wilson and Brent Stewart.
Race begins & ends at the historic Ace of Clubs house.
Adding to the spirited pre-Christmas event will be the Reindeer Run. A judged portion of the festivities, the Reindeer Run allows pet owners to enter pets wearing their best doggie Christmas attire. Reindeer ‘looks’ are encouraged for this event. There will be 8 themed ‘reindeer’ (dog) categories including best dressed, best trick, fastest and cutest. All categories are named after one of the familiar 8 reindeer mentioned in the classic, “A Visit From St. Nicholas” by Clement Clark Moore. (Also known as “Twas The Night Before Christmas.”) Every dog entered in the contest will be automatically eligible for the very special Rudolph award, which acts as a Best of Show prize.
