Welcome to the Home of the
Running of the Santas!

The 23rd Annual Running of the Santas will be

held on Saturday, December 16, 2017 


The Santa Run is a Huge Holiday Bar Crawl in Philadelphia where all of its participants dress in Santa Suits or holiday gear hopping from bar to bar on busses spreading the Christmas Spirit throughout the town. It's a great way to start off your holiday. The majority of the proceeds from the event benefit a charity, charitable event/organization, or individual/family in need. See the CHARITY tab for details on recipients.

Saturday December 16, 2017 5:30pm-3:30am
(Don't be LATE!!!)


Starting at the Sheraton in Center City at 5:30pm and continuing on to some of Philly's greatest Hot Spots. In past years, we have visited Urban Saloon, Ubahn, Finn McCools, XFinity Live, and other great bars. This year we are hoping to visit some of those places again, and/or one or two other fun spots. Of course, Pats and Genos Steaks to top off the night! If you have a suggestion for a spot that could accommodate 80-120 people that night, send Santa an e-mail!
