Chasing Santa - 5K, 10K, 15K and Half Race Description

By the time you start this race The Big Guy will already have deposited Garmin's and Gels under the tree for good runners and walkers in Tonga, Samoa, Kiribati and many other nations big and small. You had better get moving if you want to catch up to him on this annual global journey to bring cheer to all who give strava kudos to encourage others on their fitness journey.

Bring an unwrapped toy and we will donate it to a youth toy drive and reward you with a gift of your own from one of our sponsors.

Boutique events that remove barriers and help individuals to connect and achieve their goals.

Signing up for one of our run/walk events won’t break the bank. Our low cost races are cozy and intimate, where you have a chance to get to know your fellow runner and your race director if you like. If you don’t want to chat or make new friend but prefer to put in your earbuds and get lost in the ocean breeze, that is total fine as well.

We will take care of you. Let us worry about the water and fuel you need to finish your distance so you can do you. You decide what feels right for you that day. 

You have the flexibility to sign up for any of at least four different distances at every one of our friendly gatherings. No hassle, no penalty fee involved if you want to change distances on race day. Small events means not having to get to the event hours before the start or sitting in a line of cars forever to get out of the parking lot.

High Tide Runs are a project of Mercury Events LLC. Mercury Events organizes larger events in throughout the Southwest United States.
