Ditch the sleigh and pound the pavement with thousands of jolly Santas in the annual Santa Hustle 5K and Half Marathon at Moody Gardens in Galveston on Sunday, December 15, 2019.

The return of the annual Santa Hustle 5K and Half Marathon will once again flood the streets of Galveston with a field of 5,000 Santas winding around courses near the Moody Gardens campus and along Seawall Boulevard.

The holiday run event sends participants decked out in Santa hats, beards, and hoodies on a 5K course that winds through the surrounding neighborhood of Moody Gardens, or along a thirteen-mile course for a run near the beach and back. The Kids Dash kicks things off with a quick course that circles the main pyramids of Moody Gardens.

During their yuletide outing, Santa Hustle participants will also have a chance to stop by cookie stations, enjoy festive music, and spot outrageous holiday decorations that adorn their routes.

Runners can also opt for the long-sleeve Santa shirt or go for the full look with a Santa suit that includes hat, beard, coat and pants.
