Run for the Claus is back on Sunday, Dec. 4.

This six-kilometre run or three-and-a-half-kilometre walk in Santa suits always draws a big crowd of participants as it raises money for Clements Centre Society.

Everything starts and finishes in Duncan City Square.

A surprising variety of people take part in this event: kids, seniors, families with strollers, serious runners. You name it, you’ll find it in a Santa suit on Duncan’s streets that morning.

On the big day, registrations open at 10 a.m. with a fun warm-up in the square starting at         10:30 a.m.

The walk/ run officially starts at 11 a.m.

The cost of $20 includes your Santa Claus suit. Early registrations and payment can be done at the Clements Centre Society at 5856 Clements St., just off James Street near downtown.
