All participants will receive a Santa Hat and Beard, hot chocolate, pictures with Santa and the Cougar Mascot and arts and crafts for the kids. Also stop by Gilhooley's after the event for lunch and drink specials! Gilhooley's is owned by Saint Xavier University but operated by Country House.

The 2 mile route starts at 103rd and Hamlin and travels west to 103rd and Pulaski, north to 99th and Pulaski, east to 99th and Central Park, south to 103rd and Central Park, and back to The Shannon Center. We will run or walk on the sidewalks. Streets will not be closed off. Volunteers will be at each intersection and corner. This is not a timed race and awards will not be given out. This is just for holiday fun and its a great event for families and friends in the community!

This is a Shannon Center sponsored event in conjuction with the SXU Student Veterans Organization. For more information contact Jen Quinlan at quinlan@sxu.edu.
