The 7th annual Santa Hustle Glendale 5K, Half Marathon and Kids’ Dash is back for the holidays.

Registration is open now for the event which will take place on Sunday, Dec. 18 at Westgate Entertainment District, 6770 N. Sunset Blvd. The Kids Dash kicks off at 7:30 a.m., followed by the half marathon at 8 a.m. and the 5K at 8:15 a.m.

A portion of race proceeds will be donated to Glendale Firefighter Charities, who works to support the efforts of other local charities as well as elicits help when needed to fulfill community needs.

“The holiday season is the perfect time to give back to your community, and Santa Hustle is proud to be partnering with a charity that supports this — through programs that support community causes and programs,” race founder Aaron Del Mar shared in a news release. “Your participation in the Santa Hustle Glendale will add to the contribution we can offer to this invaluable organization.”

Cookie and candy stations, along with holiday music and cheer, will abound along the Santa Hustle and Kids Dash course, and an awards ceremony will follow the race. Thousands of people participate in the Santa Hustle each year, and now the race is also offered virtually.

Participants in both races will receive a Santa Hustle beanie, cozy hoodie, and a finisher medal. Participants can also purchase a Mrs. Claus package, a full Santa suit or a Santa shirt during registration.

Volunteers are needed. Santa needs helpers to distribute packets, hand out snacks and check gear during the event. All volunteers receive an elf shirt, elf hat, food and drink.
