Santas on the Loose 5k Run
The Webster Groves/Shrewsbury/Rock Hill Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the inaugural "Santas on the Loose" 5k run in Webster Groves.
The "Santas on the Loose" 5k run will be a fun day that brings new people to Webster Groves to run in costume, and enjoy the area afterwards for holiday shopping and dining. The race will further enhance the reputation of Webster Groves as a place of creative and uplifting events, such as the Old Webster Jazz Festival, Art on the Town, Art and Air and the Gazebo Series. Businesses in the area will be having promotions for the “Santas” that shop or dine afterwards. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the "Adopt a Family" program of the Webster-Rock Hill Ministries.
Registered runners will receive a red Santa hat, white beard and red shirt. The streets will be filled with Santas running the 5k course!
