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!

What

Join us for this one-of-a-king 5K event where every participant can be Santa Claus!  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.

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 in the Temple Isaiah parking lot at 332 West Alejo, Palm Springs and following a quiet and scenic route through the iconic Las Palmas neighborhood.

Event Information

Palm Springs Marathon Runners invites you to join us for our annual SANTA PAWS 5K, a dog-loving, fun, run/walk benefitting Guide Dogs of the Desert.  We'd like to thank the Greater Palm Springs Lions Club for their continuing support of this event as Presenting Sponsor.  We salute our friends at the GPS Lions Club for their continued mission to support the vision needs of our community as well as the goals of the Guide Dog of the Desert organization.
