A Fun Family event with competitive opportunities and cool awards.

Fun! You will run on the course that will serve as the parade route just 1 hour later which will have crowds like you’ve never seen cheering you on, this will be the closet most of us will know what it’s like running in the Olympics.

Family Event! Run the 1 mile with your child, then turn around and run the 5k and they will watch you run, then find a place along the curb to watch the old car cruise by and then the official parade of Santa Clara County, its 142nd running with all the floats, bands and animals.

Competitive! You will compete with runners in the PA/USATF grand prix circuit which consists of some of the fastest runners in Northern California.

Cool Awards! you bet  5k men and women and 1-mile girl and boy winners will receive a trophy, buffeted up a bit from famed local winner Marti Menz. All participants will receive a custom made-shirt until we run out ( pre-registered will be guaranteed a tee-shirt) and the top 3 in each division ( for divisions see- results from last year) will receive a beautiful metal.

5k and 1 mile childrens runners will receive recycled trophies, buffeted up a bit from famed local runner Marti Menz

It was a wet afternoon at the inaugural Running of the Elves tonight in Elk Grove, but that didn’t dampen these runners spirits. Love to see the smiles. 😊 👍 Race Results: bit.ly/38h3HK6 #runningoftheelves @CityofElkGrove @district56eg pic.twitter.com/FDOkSFUSJZ
