Join us for the most holiday festive race in Arkansas The Santa Run 5K on December 2, 2017!
The Lonoke County Council on Aging brings a day of fun for the whole family with a 5k Run/Walk and a festive finish at the historic downtown Lonoke, train depot with cookies, milk, music and hopefully snow.
The Santa Run 5k is an Arkansas original holiday event. This event includes a 5K and 1 mile walk and also host a Santa village for the kids. A five-piece adult Santa suit is included with your paid registration! Our volunteer Elves will host three special race water stations, hot-cocoa, music and Santa's Village, where kids and adults can tell their Christmas wishes to Santa and get a professional and #SelfieWithSanta photo with him. There will be games, fun activities, Food and of course one of a kind prizes for the winners!
100% of the funds raised from The Santa Run go towards the Meals on Wheels Program in Lonoke and Prairie Counties. We organize this event ourselves (thanks to many volunteer elves). Meals on Wheels is the program that delivers hot meals to home bound senior citizens each weekday. The National Foundation to End Senior Hunger says, Arkansas is ranked #1 in senior hunger nationally. An estimated 24.8 percent of Arkansans over the age of 60 are food insecure. As with people in other sectors, financial hardship makes seniors especially vulnerable. For many seniors, transportation or physical mobility limits are barriers to getting the groceries they need every week.
