Don a Santa suit and run

Here’s what will get you in the holiday ho-ho-ho-ing mood: running through the village of Paw Paw dressed as Santa (or watching hundreds of others do it).

The Paw Paw Rotary’s annual 5K Santa Run/Walk will take place Dec. 9, beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Paw Paw Middle School, 313 W. Michigan Ave. Every runner 13 and up gets a five-piece Santa suit to wear during the race (those 12 and under get Santa hats). There’s also a Reindeer Romp for kids under 8 years old and a 1K Fun Walk for all ages.

Registration is $25 (online) until Dec. 5 and $30 (in person) the day of the race. To sign up or get more info, visit runsignup.com/race/pawpaw/5Ksantarun.
