And you can be part of the Kris Kringle crush: Registration is $20, and that gets you a Santa suit to keep while also making a donation to Adopt an Angel Summit County. The charitable foundation will act as the real Santa Claus, using fun-run dollars to buy toys for kids in need. And after the race, which is just a four-block run down Main Street, all the Santas will grab toys and hand them out to kids in the crowd. The run starts at 4 p.m. at 100 South Main Street, with staging at 3:30 p.m. at Blue River Plaza. To register, e-mail email@example.com or call 970-453-5074.
The race is just part of the lighting-ceremony lineup, which also includes an appearance by the real Santa, the illumination of the town's Christmas tree, and free hot cocoa for all. Find the complete schedule at www.gobreck.com.
