Santa will run for beer 5K-ish

Bethlehem, PA – December 2, 2023



Event Overview

What is not to like about this 5K-ish….dress like Santa and beer….almost forgot about the running.  All Santas start at a bar in the north side in Bethlehem, to warm up, have some drinks and enjoy company.  At noon – Santas take off for a run around Bethlehem area bars where the first 25 to get to each location receive a free beer.   To everyone else – drink specials!  At 3 PM, all Santas will come back together at Molly’s Irish Grille and Sports Pub for live music by the Peter Johann Band and tons of fun.

Check-in at 21 Crafthouse & Kitchen  from 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM

Run begins at 12 Noon – there will be an official “GO”

*****There is no course – you can visit bars in any order you choose…strategy is key*****


There are more ways to get free beer than being first — anyone who brings a toy to donate for Toys for Tots will receive a ticket for a free beer at the starting location.


$5 from each registration will also be donated to Toys for Tots.
