Santa Trot 5K Race

Competition or Sporting Event

Runners and walkers about to start the race.

The City of LaFollette will host its 6th Annual Santa Trot 5K Race this year, December 5, 2020. The Santa Trot was started to raise funds for the City’s Amphitheater Project. Each year, runners and walkers from surrounding areas come to participate and support in the 5K race. This race is perfect for the runner enthusiasts!

At 8 a.m., runners and walkers who have registered or want to register can sign up and receive their race number and Santa Trot 5K t-shirt to put on before the race. At 9 a.m., all runners and walkers will begin the race in front of the City of LaFollette Municipal building circling around downtown LaFollette and back to the finish line. A couple hills in the course gives the race a little challenge!

Family and friends are encouraged to participate in the race together and cheer each other on!

Don't forget to dress up in your holiday gear! Antlers, Santa hats, etc.

Racing is a great way to meet other runners and walkers in your area. When the race is over and everyone has crossed the finish line, winners of each age group will receive their finished time and a prize to take home. While your downtown, please take a walk around our lovely city and check out the different restaurants, boutiques, parks and flea markets we have to offer. And later you will get a chance to see Santa Clause in the City of LaFollette’s Annual Christmas Parade!!
