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 5K is the first event of Bozeman’s Christmas Stroll.

This is a chip-timed race with prizes for each age group.  We will also award $500 to the top two participating school sponsored clubs or teams and $1000 to the PACs of the top three participating schools. Make sure to select your school, club, or team on your registration form!

Course Information:

The 5k race begins on Babcock behind the Willson Gym at 404 W. Main Street. The route will take runners in a loop from Babcock down 8th toward MSU, then Kagy and back up Willson to end again on Babcock.  A virtual 5K will be offered again for those of you who prefer to run on your own.
