People dressed in Santa suits will take to the streets of Sterling and Rock Falls for the Santas On The Run, a benefit for the Sterling-Rock Falls Family YMCA scholarship fund.


Kick off this year’s holiday season with a new family tradition. People of all ages will be dressed in full Santa regalia for the 2-mile run/walk leading the Twin Cities Holiday Parade.


This is a great family event for people of all ages and levels of fitness. The event is a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit with friends, family, or work colleagues while raising funds for a great cause.


The race will start in the YWCA parking lot in downtown Sterling, head over the 1st Ave. bridge to Rock Falls, turn right on 3rd St., and head back to the start.


Participants can run it, walk it, skip it, hop it, finish it however they like, as long as they do it in the official four-piece suit that is included with the registration fee. You must register ahead of time! No race-day registrations accepted.


Register at the Y, by mail, or online.
