If you’ve never done the Santa Run in Burlington, it’s the largest of its kind and a lot of fun. Don’t expect to get your best time, with crowded streets and the cumbersome Santa suit you’re unlikely to blaze a new record. However, the atmosphere, breakfast and great overall organization of the event make up for the minor let-downs like not being able to move inside the Lion’s Club pre-race and the lack of a finisher’s medal (it could be so great – reindeer, Santa, bag of toys, the possibilities are endless). Lots of fun, and a great one for the whole family. Check out the review:
