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.

It’s 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!

After the race, please join us in the Willson Gym for hot cocoa and cookies!
