Small Race Preview: 2017 Zonta Santa Run 5k/10k (Roseburg)

With the rising cost of races these days, it’s nice to promote the smaller races that are more affordable to all of us hard-working runners who have to really pick and choose which races to do without totally breaking the bank. So imagine my surprise when I found out that Eclectic Edge Racing’s Zonta Santa Run in Roseburg is only $35 and includes a Santa Suit to the first 200 registrants! What a total steal! And I can’t think of any better way to get into the holiday spirit than to run in a Santa Suit!

This race, which takes place in the parking lot of Roseburg High School, will be on December 9th and you’ll have the choice between running a 10k or running/walking a 5k. All the proceeds for this event go towards The Zonta Foundation which provides money towards empowering women while expanding their access to education, safe living conditions, and health care, among other things.

The 5k course (view here) is a mostly flat loop on a paved path through Stewart Park. The 10k course, (see it here) is a loop of both mixed flat and hills on sidewalks.

The Santa suits are said to run a bit small and as mentioned are in limited quantities. The cost of registration goes up a bit after November 30th as well, so why don’t you go register for this one now so you can start working that Turkey Day off before the next holiday feast!!
