2023 Saints Santa Run

Register for 2023 Saints Santa Run

Grab your costumes and running shoes, the Saints Santa Run is coming to Midtown on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023! 

About the Event
Our family-friendly winter run is bringing all ages, and even pets, to downtown Oklahoma City for a festive 5K and costume contest. This event is a great way to stay active and spread cheer during the holiday season!

Participate in the 5K Run/Walk or 1-Mile Fun Run and receive a commemorative Saints Santa Run t-shirt and finisher medal. All are invited to enjoy free activities like face painting and balloon art, complimentary snacks and drinks, holiday music and more at our start/finish line celebration on the SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital campus.

Be sure to bring your kiddos (ages 8 and under) for the free Kids' Dash, taking place just before the race!

It wouldn't be the Saints Santa Run without a costume contest! Dress up like Santa or in your most festive holiday costume for a chance to win cash prizes immediately following the race. Post your photo on Facebook or Instagram and tag @downtownokc with hashtag #SaintsSantaRun for a chance to be included in our costume round-up.

Cue up the Saints Santa Run playlist and get ready to run!
