Santa Cause Run

The 2020 Santa Cause Run is not cancelled or postponed - participate virtually!

No, that's NOT a typo! Grand Junction Parks and Recreation is teaming up with Kiwanis for an event that will help fund inclusive playground equipment!!

You'll have one week to track your run using a fitness app of your choice and submit your time for place prizes. The first 300 participants will receive a Santa suit or race shirt to wear during their run, and photo submissions quaify you for raffle prizes. For kids 11 years of age and younger, there will be a fun 1k option. Receive a free 1k with a paid 5k entry.

Kiwanis volunteers will pop down the chimney to deliver your Santa suit and race-day goodies, or you can pick them up in advance at the Recreation office (1340 Gunnison Avenue). 

1K Run: 11 years of age or younger/ $15   5K Run: All Ages/ $30

Register by December 3!
