Posted by    |    December 12th, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Although there’s nothing better than running from zombies (DFW Zombie Run), a fleet of quick-moving Santas is a close second. It’s like Santa Con but faster and less alcoholic. Join the North Texas Santa Run on Saturday, December 15 at The Shops at Legacy in their world record attempt for the world’s largest Santa gathering.

Hosted by Carrie McClure from Good Morning Texas, the Santa Run is a 5K, 1 Mile Fun-Run and festival filled with music, entertainment and plenty of hot chocolate. You’ll get a five-piece Santa suit when you register—way cooler than a t-shirt—and compete to be the Fastest Santa or simply enjoy a day surrounded by men (and women) in red.
