Organizers Reschedule Santa Run

Last Saturday’s first-ever Santa Run was grounded by some seriously bad weather. In calling off the race, organizer Joe Bailor of the Chamber of Commerce noted Saturday morning that sidewalks on Rezanof Drive were mostly unplowed, and while Mill Bay Road was plowed of snow, there was still slush and ice everywhere. That’s in addition to the sideways rain. He described the conditions as too dangerous for a fun run.
The race has been rescheduled for this upcoming Saturday, December 15th. Bailor took an informal poll about the start time, and the consensus was to keep it at 11 a.m. at the high school. Registration starts at 10.
He says that just in case the weather gets crazy again on Saturday, the back-up race date is the next day at 2 p.m. Give Bailor a shout at the Chamber of Commerce for more information.
The Santa Run is a “theme race,” where participants are encouraged to dress up as Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause, one of the reindeer or any character from the season. Proceeds from the entry fees will all go to charity. So, as Bailor says, “Come Run for a Claus.”
