Recognized by Runners World as one of the Top 10 Races for the Whole Family and Top 11 Races to Run with your Doggie, the 12k’s of Christmas is a must do for visitors to Arizona this December. 

This unique family festival celebrates health, fitness and the joy of Christmas, while supporting local animal rescue groups. The event includes a 12k run, 6k run/walk and a 1.2k Santa “Sled Run”, plus a Christmas Bazaar, Santa’s Pet Village with pet adoptions, and live Christmas entertainment in the park and along the race course.

Wear a Santa Suit, dress up the kids as elves, put costumes on your pets, and decorate your wagons and strollers. There will be wrapped gifts under the Christmas tree for some of the best outfits. Shop in the Christmas Bazaar and visit furry friends in Santa’s Pet Village.
