What is a Virtual Run/Walk?
A Virtual Run/Walk is basically like running a race with tons of other people…just not all at the same place.   It can be run (or walked) from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the sidewalk, on the trail, or even on the treadmill.  You get to run your own race at your own pace and time it yourself.  There are no crowds, no waking up early to find a parking place and rushing to get to the start line on time, and no worrying about bad weather at race time.

When is packet pickup?
Friday 12/4, 3PM-6PM and Saturday 12/5, 9AM-12PM at the Village Bank branch parking lot (311 Arlington Heights Rd, Arlington Heights, IL 60005). This will be a drive-through pick up.

Are pets allowed?
This year’s run/walk is virtual, so as long as you follow safe running/walking rules, anything is fine. Yes, your four-legged friends are welcome to join us!  

Can I get a refund?
The Rotary Santa Run is a charitable fundraiser and entry fees are non-refundable.

Will the race be canceled for weather conditions?
The beauty of the virtual run is that you will have two weeks to do this, so you can pick the day of your choice.

Are the Santa suits included with the registration fee?
Yes, your registration fee includes a Santa suit that is yours to keep. In addition, the first 500 participants will receive a commemorative Santa Run Medal.

Where do we pick up the packets for the race?
Packet pickup is held at 900 W Central Rd, Arlington Heights, IL 60005.

Can I pick up someone else’s packet?
Yes, as long as you have their name, you can pick up someone else’s packet for them.


Can I try on my Santa suit at packet pick-up this year?
No, due to COVID-19 precautions, no try-ons will be allowed.


If I need a different size Santa suit, can I exchange the one I picked up?
No, due to COVID-19 precautions, no Santa suit exchanges will be allowed this year.

Can I sign up my child for the 5K instead of the reindeer race?
Yes.

Can we sign up as a group?
Absolutely!
