Holiday Run fit for the whole family

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s the first of its kind and this fun run is helping to get those involved in the holiday spirit.

Erin Gallegos and Arlene Espinoza-Armijo with Special Olympics New Mexico joined KRQE’s This Morning team to discuss the race. Watch above.

The premier race is fun for the whole family. The Santa Shuffle is a 5K, but the Elf Scoot 1K is a perfect fit for the kiddos.

For the adults, dressing up is encouraged. Where else can you run in a full Santa suit? Adults will receive a one size fits all Santa suit and children registered for the Elf Scoot will receive a T-shirt and Elf hat.
