Bells will be ringing in downtown Amherstburg as hundreds of jolly participants walk and run once again at the Essex Region Conservation’s annual Super Santa 5K Walk/Run on Saturday, November 16th.

A sea of Santas will flood the streets along the five-kilometre route, which winds its way through downtown Amherstburg and highlights a number of historic sites, including Fort Malden and Navy Yard Park.

“This is event is fun for the whole family. In addition to promoting healthy and active living, it is a great way to kick off the holiday season,” said Essex Region Conservation Foundation President Susan Stockwell Andrews. “It’s always amazing to watch nearly five-hundred Santas fill the streets in support of conservation efforts.”

Registration fees are $45 per adult and $35 for children under 16. All participants will receive a free Santa suit to wear for the run, including a jacket, pants, belt, beard, and hat. Teams of ten or more will receive $5 off per participant, so grab your friends, cousins, and co-workers to join in the jolly fun – and save!

If you are not able to participate, consider being one of Santa’s helpers as a volunteer marshal along the route. The event is a great opportunity for high school students to fulfill their required community hours.

All funds raised support the efforts of the Essex Region Conservation Foundation in enriching the Place for Life with trails and trees, both important tools to enhance health and physical activity and combat climate change.

The run gets underway at 5pmand  following it is the kick off to the spectacular Amherstburg River Lights Festival.
