Not many people would peg Santa Claus as a runner—his rotund figure doesn’t help his case—but The HoHoHo5K Fun Run seems to prove them wrong. Santa’s fitness prowess is redeemed thanks to a hoard of runners taking to the streets of Council Bluffs in holiday costumes; popular selections include the man in red, as well as Mrs. Claus and other holiday characters. The race takes participants through downtown and past Bayliss Park, which will be aglow with string lights, and past water and hot-chocolate stations. Participants are encouraged to donate a new toy on the day of the race to help local kids have a memorable holiday, and a portion of the race’s proceeds further these efforts.
