There is still time left to register for the first annual Mojo Running Santa Suit Fun Run that will be taking place this Sunday at 11 a.m. in The Streets of West Chester. Registration will be accepted through midnight on Thursday.
All of the proceeds from the event will benefit Reach Out Lakota, which is a charitable organization aimed at assisting individuals and families in the Lakota school district through its food and clothing pantries.
The first 500 runners who register will receive a free Santa suit. According to Reach Out Lakota’s facebook page, there are still a few suits available. Participants, however, who miss out on the suit can still get a knit beanie hat with the running Santa logo.
In addition to the race, there will be pictures with Santa, Christmas music, cookies and cocoa, door prizes and free goodies from local merchants.
The cost to register for the 5K run/walk is $35 and the cost to register if you are 12 and under is $15. To register for the event or for more information, visit www.runmojo.com or www.registrationspot.com.
The Streets of West Chester, 9465 Civic Center Boulevard, is located off Union Centre Boulevard just off the I-75 exit.
