About the Santa Run

Join us for the 10th Annual Waukesha Santa 5K Run & Walk! The Santa Run gathers 500 runners and walkers dressed in their best holiday gear. Favorite costumes include elves, reindeer, a giant present, and of course, Santa Claus.

Gather before the race to enjoy holiday music and an appearance by Santa himself. The run/walk begins outside of Taylor’s People’s Park and winds through historic downtown Waukesha and around Frame Park. Along the route, participants are entertained by marching bands, dancers, and carolers.

The Waukesha Santa 5K Run & Walk benefits Eras Senior Network, formerly known as Interfaith Senior Programs. Eras is a nonprofit organization serving seniors and adults with disabilities throughout Waukesha County by providing services like transportation and yard care to those in need of support and meaningful volunteer opportunities to seniors looking to engage in the community. Not only will you have a fun time participating in the Santa Run, but you’ll be supporting a great cause too!
