Santa and child high-five each other at the 2021 Santa Fun Run

Be a “Claus for a Cause”

golden rule

Imagine hundreds of happy Santas walking or running through Charlottesville’s most festive streets, and you’re visualizing The Arc’s annual Santa Fun Run. This cherished community event is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. The Run takes place along a one-mile route on the downtown mall. Registration includes a Santa suit or elf ears, light refreshments before the race, and photo ops with The Arc’s very own Santa! Be a “Claus for a Cause” and bring your friends, families, wheelchairs, strollers, and dogs for a fun day walking, riding, or running in support of The Arc’s mission.
