Santa Claus 5k

Runners cross the finish line during last year’s Santa Claus 5k at the Sparrows Point Country Club.

The third annual run to benefit Santa Claus Anonymous is scheduled for December 7 on the grounds of the Sparrows Point Country club.

The event is a 5k “Fun Run” and a 1-mile walk.

The race begins at 8:30 a.m. and is entirely within the country club property.

Registration on race day begins at 7:30 a.m. Registration can also be one online at active.com (search for “Santa Claus Anonymous 2019 5k and walk”),

The fee is $35 for the 5K run and $20 for the one-mile walk. For first responders, the registration fee is $25 for the 5k run.

All of the proceeds from the event will be used to benefit Santa Claus Anonymous, a non-profit organization which provides gift certificates to needy families in order to purchase holiday presents.

All participants in the 5k run and one-mile walk will receive a t-shirt and coupons for free area merchandise. Refreshments will be provided following the race.

Sponsors of the event include Owl metals and North American Millwright.
