Breckenridge, Colo. will kick off the holiday season with a kids’ fundraiser Reindeer Run, a new addition to Race of the Santas on Dec. 1, 2012. The fun runs take place just prior to the Lighting of Breckenridge, both include costumes with registration, and proceeds benefit Adopt an Angel Summit County.
Family members can dress as reindeer, Santa or Mrs. Claus for this downtown event that brings hundreds of Santa Clauses sprinting down Main Street. Registration starts at $10; the $30 entry includes a Santa suit. All proceeds benefit Adopt an Angel Summit County. Free hot cocoa, caroling, a procession with the real Santa, and lighting of the town tree follow the race.
