5K Run/Walk - December 12, 2021
(Rain or Shine)
Do all those cozy holiday gatherings make you sweat? Run for the chill of it! Join Fleet Feet Sacramento for our annual Holiday Classic Fun Run. The race is FREE. It’s our gift to the running community. The race began as a lighthearted reason to gather for a run during the holiday season and has developed into a toy drive for the Salvation Army. This year the Salvation Army can use the support of the running community and the community at large in these tough economic times. Our goal is to fill a Salvation Army truck with your donations.
THE FLEET FEET HOLIDAY CLASSIC IS FREE! The run starts at 9:00 am and since the race is short, it’s usually over within 40 minutes. Finishers are greeted with a steamy cup of coffee or hot chocolate from the Salvation Army cantina that is onsite.This is just a fun run so there are no winners or losers. There aren’t even any awards. There isn’t even a race t-shirt unless you count the ones we give away that day from past races.The run will take place rain or shine. It will probably be cold, but running with hundreds of people warms you up. Plus, everyone will be in winter running clothes some complete with Santa hats and red and green holiday attire. Registration takes place on-site at the race. There is no fee, we ask that you simply bring an unwrapped toy for the Salvation Army toy drive. All race participants need to sign a waiver race morning.
