2022 Saints Santa Run

Grab your costumes and running shoes, the Saints Santa Run is coming to Midtown on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022! 

About the Event
Our family-friendly winter run is bringing all ages, and even pets, to downtown Oklahoma City for a festive 5K and costume contest. This event is a great way to stay active and spread cheer during the holiday season!

Participate in the 5K Run/Walk or 1-Mile Fun Run and receive a commemorative Saints Santa Run t-shirt and finisher medal. All are invited to enjoy free activities like face painting and balloon art, complimentary snacks and drinks, holiday music and more at our start/finish line celebration on the SSM Health - St. Anthony Hospital campus.

Be sure to bring your kiddos (ages 8 and under) for the free Kids' Dash, taking place just before the race!

It wouldn't be the Saints Santa Run without a costume contest! Dress up like Santa or in your most festive holiday costume for a chance to win cash prizes immediately following the race. Post your photo on Facebook or Instagram and tag @downtownokc with hashtag #SaintsSantaRun for a chance to be included in our costume round-up.

Cue up the Saints Santa Run playlist and get ready to run!
