Event Information

The challenges are meant to engage our running groups and give us all some final goals to reach for 2020!

We will be having group runs in Syracuse and Utica and we will be encouraging our virtual friends from out of the area to organize their own! Syracuse area runners can pick up their Santa Swag at USA Racing on Tuesday, December 22nd. The Secret Santa will be revealed. Utica area runners will be able to get their Santa Swag at The Sneaker Store on Wednesday, December 23rd - you will never guess who Santa Sizzle is! Our virtual friends will have their Santa Swag shipped to them just in time for the holidays!

Santa Sizzle’s helpers will keep you engaged and challenged throughout the month and we may even have some special gift cards and giveaways for those who have been really good during this trying year!


Santa is checking this list and will be checking it twice! We are also trying to include a live event as part of this Holiday Miracle!
