Christmas In July (June) RacesThe Christmas in July Races will be a memorable event for all involved. Eight (8) different running events will be held: Santa Fun Run, 5K and 6, 12, 24-hour (Solo and Relay) fixed-timed events. In the center of all this activity will be a Christmas theme. Due to uncontrollable circumstances with the school doing parking lot construction in 2019, we were forced to move up the date to June 14-15, 2019 from our regularly scheduled event date of July 12-13, 2019. In 2020, we will be returning to our regularly scheduled date in July. Click here for more information Posted on Feb 14, 2019 by
