Refund Policy: Since Santa Claus has many upfront costs, we have a strict and uniform policy of no refunds or exchanges, no person-to-person transfer, or no deferrals to a future year. We do understand that plans change, injuries happen, and various holiday festivities and situations arise, but, we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of a subjective line of who should receive a refund and who doesn’t. All purchases and sales are 100% final, no exceptions. The event will take place rain or shine and refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
The Santa Hustle Race Series consists of multiple races in the cities of Chicago IL, Milwaukee WI, Sevierville TN, Indianapolis IN, Sandusky OH, Galveston TX, South Portland ME, Glendale AZ, Newport RI, and Virtually! Be a part of thousands of Santa’s running across the nation!
