Registration for the Las Vegas Great Santa Run – the most wonderful fun run of the year – is now open! The race is returning to Downtown Las Vegas for its 18th year with a hybrid format, offering runners around the world two options to support Opportunity Village: a full capacity in-person race on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022, or a virtual race that can be completed any time between Dec. 3-24, 2022.
Interested participants can register now at LVSantaRun.com.
- October – Race Day: $45 per person
In-Person race day festivities will include a fun-filled pre-show under the Fremont Street Experience canopy at 3rd Street Stage beginning at 8 a.m. From there, participants will take on the 5k or 1-mile course, and cross the finish line into the Llama Lot for festivities featuring a variety of food trucks, vendors, and live entertainment.
Runners and walkers for both in-person and virtual runs will receive a medal, race bib, swag bag and Santa suit (while supplies last) with their paid registration. Pets are always welcome to join in the fun – simply sign them up when you register yourself and they will receive a special goodie bag of their own. We encourage those participating to further support Opportunity Village by fundraising for the nonprofit and having friends and family participate in the event with you.
Known as one of Las Vegas’ most jolly fun runs, the internationally recognized Las Vegas Great Santa Run raises funds and awareness for Opportunity Village’s programs and services, which provide unparalleled opportunities, enrichment and support to over 3,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
Opportunity Village is excited to bring back the Pet Costume Contest this year and will announce the details later this month as they gear up for the 18th annual event. Please follow The Las Vegas Great Santa Run on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.
Those interested in sponsoring should contact [email protected] for available opportunities.
About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people throughout our community with intellectual disabilities, to enhance their lives and the lives of the families who love them.
Seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible founded Opportunity Village in 1954. Now, more than six decades later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts, multiple business lines, fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, and grants on the federal and state level, saving Nevada taxpayers more than $37 million annually.
