Overview and Purpose:

The Santa Run for Education is an annual event where the community gathers to kick-off the holiday season and celebrate education and exercise. This event is the first event of Bozeman’s Christmas Stroll.

This is a chip-timed race with prizes for each age group. All proceeds benefit Bozeman, Belgrade, Gallatin Gateway, Manhattan and Monforton Public Schools. We award cash prizes to PACs of the top three participating schools, so make sure to select your school on your application form.
