WELCOME to the CHCH Santa Burlington...

Canada’s Original All-Santa Race is still

the Biggest and the Best!

Approximately 2,500 Santas are expected to participate on Saturday, December 8 in the CHCH Santa Burlington 5K, Canada’s Largest All-Santa Race! This is a great family event and a great way to celebrate the season. (All participants receive a Santa suit to be worn during the race. Santa suits are mandatory. And although the event is untimed, anyone not wearing the entire suit - including the beard - will be disqualified. The Santa suits are lightweight and made for running. Sizes include Men, Women, and Children.)

Anyone bringing a friend to register will receive a Free Gift!  So bring a friend or the whole family and plan to spend the day in beautiful downtown Burlington, Ontario. Enjoy the variety of shops and restaurants including Emma’s Back Porch, HoneyWest, and Wendal Clark’s where they will be offering post-race breakfast and lunch specials to all our CHCH Santa Burlington participants.
