Chasing Santa 5K
Runners learn the secret to Kris Kringle’s gift-giving at Colorado’s largest Santa run: he has a little help. Participants are invited to bring an unwrapped toy for a local drive (and get rewarded with 3 seconds shaved off their finish time per toy), and get fittingly kitted out with a Santa suit, a Santa hat, and a big fluffy beard.

- $29 for entry for one with a Santa suit ($45 value)
- $54 for entry for two with Santa suits ($90 value)
- $100 for entry for four with Santa suits ($180 value)
The LYM in LYMevents stands for "leave your mark," a sentiment echoed by the many races the company holds throughout the year. After runners take their mark, they're encouraged to leave it in pursuit of the finish line, be it at a costumed 5K or a full marathon. The race management company takes care of the race logistics, from mile markers to course layout, leaving participants to simply put one foot in front of the other, or shuffle side-to-side like a crab if that's their preferred method of running.
