Celebrate the holidays with family and friends at the Holiday Hustle 5K! Holiday attire is encouraged – there are even awards for the best dressed. All participants receive a great long-sleeve shirt, finisher medal/ornament, and chip timing. Stick around after for hot chocolate and awards…it may end being the least stressful day of the holiday season!
Online registration closes Thursday, December 14th at 5:00 PM, but you can still register at packet pickup or on race day. Shirts are NOT guaranteed to registrants after 12/9.
5k: $25 until October 31, $30 until November 30, $35 until December 15, $40 at packet pickup and on race day
Kids 10 & under are welcome to participate in the 5K race at no charge, but will not receive a race shirt (they will receive a finisher medal/ornament). Please use the “Kids 10 & Under 5k – No Shirt” category on Active.com to register. If you would like your child to receive a shirt, please register them in the regular 5k category.
The 5K course begins on the Harford Community College campus outside of the Susquehanna Center, and travels through on a loop through the HCC campus before returning to the starting area for the finish.
The course is entirely on paved and crushed gravel surfaces. For safety reasons, pets, roller skates, and other wheeled devices (with the exception of wheelchairs) are not allowed on the course. Jogging strollers are permitted, but we ask that you start in the back of the pack so that your stroller does not create a tripping hazard. In order to hear instructions from course marshals and safety personnel during the event we STRONGLY discourage the use of headphones.
Top 3 overall males and females, as well as in each age group as follows:
10 and under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+
First male and female runners to finish the course in a complete Santa costume (red long sleeve shirt/jacket, red pants, beard, and hat). These costumes do not need to be shopping mall quality, but red running shorts are NOT pants 😉
