Santa Hustle 5K and Kids Dash

Thousands of Santas will hit the streets of Milwaukee during the 9th annual Santa Hustle 5K and Kids Dash. Runners and walkers alike are warmly invited to join this magical event. In addition to loads of holiday fun, Santa Hustle also gives back and has partnered with Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful- a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainability through clean, healthy, and beautiful communities for generations to come. Santa Hustlers will jingle all the way to cookie and candy stations along the course to fuel their holiday cheer! And afterwards, an after party will include awards, medals for top finishers, milk and cookies! Santa Hustlers get a Santa hat, beard, and a finisher’s medal included with registration - and new for 2019 – men’s, women’s or unisex hoodies, along with the option to add a Santa shirt, full Santa suit, or Mrs. Claus packages. The holiday fun only grows every year! Ho-ho-ho, who wouldn’t want to go? “Santa Hustle creates a magical experience over the holidays, and it really has something for everyone,” says the Santa Hustle Race Series founder, Aaron Del Mar, “We have partnered with an amazing charity, have new swag and brought back live reindeer; whether you’re naughty or nice it’s a fantastic event to enjoy good old fashioned holiday fun with friends and family!” Volunteers needed! Santa’s Elves are needed to distribute packets, hand out snacks, and check gear during the event. All ‘elves’ receive an elf shirt, elf hat, food, drink, and Santa’s eternal gratitude. Additional event sponsors include Dunkin’, Boxed Water, Reign Total Body Fuel, Lifeway, and Milwaukee Casino and Poker Rentals.
