After Party: The Santa Hustle® post race party will be at Navy Pier! All the bars will open at 10 a.m. for Santa Hustle runners. Be sure to bring your race bib in order to receive awesome food and drink specials.

Refunds: Since Santa Claus has many upfront costs, we have a strict and uniform policy of no refunds or exchanges, no person-to-person transfer, or no deferrals to a future year. We do understand that plans change, injuries happen, and various holiday festivities and situations arise, but, we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of a subjective line of who should receive a refund and who doesn’t. All purchases and sales are 100% final, no exceptions. Refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions and/or pandemics. Santa appreciates your understanding in this matter. 

The Santa Hustle® Race Series consists of multiple races in the cities of Chicago IL, Milwaukee WI, Sevierville TN, Indianapolis IN, Sandusky OH, Galveston TX, Roseville, CA, Glendale, AZ, and Virtually! Be a part of thousands of Santa’s running across the nation!
