Help From Our Friends

The oldest holiday run in the region is less than a month away! The Rotary Santa Run is set for Dec. 1st in downtown Arlington Heights. Join thousands of your closest friends in a 5k run or 1k walk around the heart of the village. Have a blast helping to raise funds supporting worthy causes while decked out in the provided Santa suit or your holiday best.

The Santa Run is proud to announce the renaming of our children’s race to the Goldfish Swim School Reindeer Run! The Goldfish Swim School is a new supporter of our event and we couldn’t be happier! Keep an eye out for schools of fish running the course.

We are also proud to announce that Arlington Heights Ford will be this year’s Pace Car Sponsor! Arlington Heights Ford is another new sponsor to the Santa Run, and we’re glad to have them on board.

The Rotary Club of Arlington Heights has presented the Santa Run for the past eleven years with the support of many local businesses. This year, our Elf Sponsors include: Village Bank & Trust; Drost, Kivlahan, McMahon & O’Connor, LLC; Lutheran Home; Northwest Community Health & Wellness Center; and Allstate.

Glueckert Funeral Home, Ltd and Northwest Speech & Hearing are Rudolph Sponsors, and our Stocking Sponsors are Peggy Kinnane’s Irish Restaurant & Pub; James J. Bertucci, CFP; Marc Poulos Painting and Decorating; Waverly Inn; and Wheeling Town Center.

Supporting us as Gift Sponsors are Fitness 19, K Auto Repair and Tire Center, and Picket Fence Realty.

Northwest Eye Physicians and Cortland’s Garage Tavern & Grill are Donating Sponsors this year. Remember to #shoplocal and support all of the businesses who allow us to continue the longest running holiday themed race in the area. The Santa Run would not be possible without the support from these local business owners and we are so grateful for it.

Join neighbors and friends to kick off the holiday season for a great cause. Register today and your fee is just $40. If you wait until race day, it jumps to $45.

Visit to join the fun on December 1. #RunforaCause #RunforaClaus
