Race Description

Each year the Las Vegas Great Santa Run attracts thousands of runners and walkers from all over including families, businesses, individuals and global tourists to downtown Las Vegas.

Your registration includes a five-piece Santa suit, a medal and the opportunity to be a part of the largest gathering of Santas in the world!

For the first time in its 14-year history, the Las Vegas Great Santa Run will feature an official after-party with live entertainment, food vendors, adult beverages, special activities and more! 

Don't miss a high-octane set by emerging Las Vegas alt-rockers SILVERSAGE and other special performances by Aussie HeatLegends In Concert and DJ Ultra in the Zappos' Llama Lot (152 N. 9th St. Las Vegas, NV 89101). Admission is free with your Santa Run registration!

The Las Vegas Great Santa Run is an incredibly important fundraiser for Opportunity Village, a not-for-profit that serves adults with intellectual disabilities. All proceeds directly benefit the programs and services provided at Opportunity Village.

Wonderful Holiday Event

The Great Santa Claus Race is an Event. From the pre Race party on Main Street to the great entertainment, outstanding costumes and an over the top atmosphere of Holiday Cheer. We have friends coming to the Race from all over the USA to celebrate LV and to celebrate a great charity.

BEST EVENT OF THE YEAR

Few things in life can top running/jogging/skipping through downtown Las Vegas with 10,000 of your closest Santa friends. A great way to support a local cause while soaking in ALL the holiday cheer!
