Event Information
Palm Springs Marathon Runners invites you to join us for the 5th Anniversary Santa Paws 5K, a dog-loving fun run/walk benefitting Guide Dogs of the Desert. We'd like to thank this year's presenting sponsor, THE PALM SPRINGS LIONS CLUB, for their sponsorship of this event and their mission to support the goals of Guide Dogs of the Desert.
GOODIES GALORE!

Yes, it will seem like Christmas because of all the goodies you receive with your registration!  Each participant receives a 5-piece Santa suit that can be worn during the event and is then yours for keeps! This includes a jacket, pants, belt, hat and beard. You will also receive a holiday tech T-shirt, gorgeous finisher medal with sublimated ribbon, finisher and posed photo downloads and goodie bag!


PRESENTING SPONSOR

THE PALM SPRINGS LIONS CLUB IS THE PRESENTING SPONSOR OF THIS YEAR'S RACE.  THE LIONS CLUB'S MISSION IS TO SUPPORT VISION HEALTH AND SO IT IS MOST APPROPRIATE THAT THEY HAVE CHOSEN TO SUPPORT GUIDE DOGS OF THE DESERT THROUGH THEIR GENEROUS SPONSORSHIP.  YOU ROCK, P.S. LIONS CLUB!

WHO

Everyone is welcome! Runners, walkers, strollers, doggies, EVEN reindeer - come one - come all for a great morning filled with holiday cheer and lots of Ho! Ho! Ho's! Too lazy to come and run? Sign up for the Scrooge category and you can hide under the covers and still support a wonderful cause! Out of town that day? Sign up as a virtual runner and we will mail you your complete outfit and you can race with us from anywhere on the globe! (even the North Pole)


WHERE

Follow a fast and flat course (well, mostly flat...there is one little hill..but then the downhill to the finish is awesome) beginning at Temple Isaiah 332 W. Alejo in Palm Springs and following a quiet and scenic route through local neighborhoods.

The Elf Dash, for children 10 and under is a short 200 meter run at the start/finish line and well in view of all parents and spectators.


WHY

Get into the Christmas Spirit and help support Guide Dogs of the Desert, a 501c3 charity that provides guide dogs at no cost for the blind and sight impaired as well as assistance dogs for those with seizures, Autism or PTSD.
