San Diego will be very merry indeed, as more than 3,000 Santas take over Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach for The 5th Annual San Diego Santa Run, Saturday, Dec. 9, starting at 10 a.m. Hosted by High Performance Movement, the event is one of the largest Santa Runs in the U.S., and consists of a series of waves, including a 5K Fun Run and one-mile runs that feature the Santa’s Little Helper Mile (for the festive pup), the Santa’s Elves Mile (for kids) and the Speedy Mile (for competitive Santas).
Throughout the course, runners donning “Sunny Santa Suits” — complete with white beards, Santa hats and sunglasses (it is San Diego after all) — will get in the spirit as holiday music is performed live on corners along the route.
Following the Santa Run, Kris Kringles — young and old — are invited to stick around for The 38th Annual Pacific Beach Holiday Parade, marching down Garnet Avenue beginning at 1 p.m. The parade is funded, in part, by revenue generated through the Santa Run and other events put on by High Performance Movement.
