 Santa Paws 5K is a dog-loving fun run/walk benefitting the Guide Dogs of the Desert. Each participant receives a 5-piece Santa suit that can be worn during the event and is then yours for keeps! 

This includes a jacket, pants, belt, hat and beard. 

All participants run, walk or stroll the 5K (3.1mile) route. Strollers and doggies are welcome! There will also be a 200 meter Elf Dash for children 10 and under. Entry for the kids' event is $10 and includes an elf hat, event button and Ben and Jerry's ice cream certificate for all participants.

WHERE:

Follow a fast and flat course (OK, there's one hill) beginning at Temple Isaiah 332 W. Alejo in Palm Springs and following a quiet and scenic route through local neighborhoods.

WHO:

Everyone is welcome! Runners, walkers, strollers, doggies - come one - come all for a great morning filled with holiday cheer and lots of Ho! Ho! Ho's! Too lazy to come and run? Sign up for the Scrooge category and you can hide under the covers and still support a wonderful cause! Out of town that day? Sign up as a virtual runner and we will mail you your complete outfit and you can race with us from anywhere on the globe! (even the North Pole)

WHY:
