• All runners will be assigned a “role” of either reindeer or elf. They will not know which they are until packet pick-up
• There will be no switching roles. It would make life very difficult on our race scorers. Thank you for understanding.
• All participants MUST wear their race shirt on race day (either their reindeer shirt or elf shirt) and their assigned bib. Headgear that we provide runners (reindeer antlers and elf hat) are optional but encouraged.
• Online registration will close at 3:00pm on Saturday, December 7. In-person registration and packet pick-up will close on Saturday at 4:00pm.
• Packet pick-up will be Friday, December 6 (Time TBA), and Saturday (Time TBA), December 7, and Sunday, December 8 (Time TBA) at Lowes Foods in Lewisville at 177 Lowes Food Drive, Lewisville, NC 27023.
• There will be NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION. Sorry, no exceptions.
• Runners should arrive at the Lowes Foods staging area no later than 2:30pm to ensure their ability to participate in the race.
• The race will start at 2:45pm. There is a 30-minute time limit to get to the 2-mile mark (15-minute mile pace). All runners MUST be at the 2-mile mark of the race by 30 minutes after the start.
• We encourage all participants to stay and watch the Lewisville Christmas Parade after Santa’s Showdown.
• Each runner will receive an individual time, but the awards for the race will go to a group—either the reindeer or the elves. The group with the lowest average time for the 2.5-mile distance will have an ornament put on the Christmas Tree Trophy. (The elves won the inaugural race.)
• The only individual awards that will be distributed are top male/female reindeer and top male/female elf. But don’t fret, every race finisher will receive a small award/gift that Santa has designed himself.
• The Lewisville Christmas Parade will begin at approximately 3:15pm.
• Parking information coming soon.
