Team Santa Paws is a VIP team of 212 runners, each of whom receives their own lightweight Santa running suit with beard attached. Team members can run in the 6K or 12K race, and receive a pair of 12k's of Christmas logo socks, a photo with the rest of the team, and VIP check-in and packet pickup. Team members also enjoy admission to the Santa Paws Club House, where they enjoy pre-race munchies, seating, heaters, reserved porta-potties, and bag check.

12k's of Christmas

At the 12k's of Christmas, a peloton of Santas and seasonally-dressed runners race through the Gilbert's Freestone District Park. All participants receive a Santa hat to wear, and are encouraged to dress up further with colorful socks, an elf costume, or felt reindeer horns. Both 6K and 12K races feature a flat, mainly packed-gravel trail with carolers set up at every kilometer. Chronotrack chips track progress, and race organizers issue awards for the top finishers in each age bracket as well as best costumes. The race also offers a 1.2 K Santa "Sled" run, where racers are encouraged to walk a stroller or enter a souped-up wagon pulled by their pets. By partnering with adoption groups and shelters, the event operates Santa's Pet Village, which helps connects stray pets with new families.
