    REFUNDS

    • Since Santa Claus has many upfront costs, we have a strict and uniform policy of no refunds or exchanges, no person-to-person transfer, or no deferrals to a future year. We do understand that plans change, injuries happen, and various holiday festivities and situations arise, but, we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of a subjective line of who should receive a refund and who doesn’t. All purchases and sales are 100% final, no exceptions. Refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions and/or pandemics. Santa appreciates your understanding in this matter. 

    2022 SANTA HUSTLE RACE SERIES

    The Santa Hustle® Race Series consists of multiple races in the cities of Chicago IL, Sevierville TN, Indianapolis IN, Atlantic City, NJ, Galveston TX, Roseville, CA, Glendale, AZ, and Virtually! Be a part of thousands of Santa’s running across the nation!

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
