CAMERON PARK — Looking for a way to burn off those Thanksgiving calories? If so, put on your Santa suit and favorite running shoes for the fifth annual Santa Run.

Sponsored by Cameron Park Community Services District, this year’s run takes place Saturday, Dec. 1. The 3.1 mile race will start and end at the district’s community center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park. Runners will go to Knollwood Drive, Greenwood Drive, Merrychase Drive, back onto Country Club and toward Bass Lake Road before heading back to the finish line at the center.

“The first 50 participants get a free Santa hat donated by Marshall Hospital,” Tina Helm, recreation supervisor for the district said. “There will be prizes for the best three Santa suits.”

Helm said gift certificates will be awarded to the best three Santa suits.

Helm also noted that there will be two age brackets for the race — adult and youth. Walkers and mothers with strollers are encouraged to participate, Helm noted.

Last year, approximately 80 runners competed.

This year’s race will go on, rain or shine, according to Helm.

People competing or watching the race are asked to bring a canned food item to be donated to the Food Bank of El Dorado County.

Proceeds from the race will go toward race expenses and future events, Helm said.

Pre-registration is $25 for adults and $15 for children 17 and under. The day of the race, registration is $30 and cash only.

To register for the run or for more information call 530-677-2231 or visit cameronpark.org.
