Race Information

The Rotary 5K Santa Run and Reindeer Dash is a great family event that kicks off the holiday season. Join the Rotary Club of Arlington Heights to form a sea of Santas and "Run for a Cause as a Clause!"

The event features a timed road course that starts and ends in Downtown Arlington Heights. There's ample free parking available, and the race offers a 5K Run, 1-Mile Walk, and a 2-Block Reindeer Dash for the kids. All runners and walkers receive finisher medals and a great swag bag that includes a Santa hat, beard, belt, coat, and pants. All reindeer Dashers receive finisher medals, reindeer antlers, and a reindeer nose.

This event is held by the Rotary Club of Arlington Heights (RCAH) to raise funds for it’s annual Community Grants Program. To date, the Rotary Club of Arlington Heights, with your assistance, has donated over $300,000 to worthy causes throughout Arlington Heights and its neighboring communities, directly as a result of the Santa Run.
