run, run, rudolph



Either the holiday bug has bitten us or someone has spiked our apple cider. From peppermint lattes to festive (and questionable) Christmas sweaters, our spirits are shining brighter than Rudolph’s nose on even the foggiest of nights. Balancing celebrations with an active lifestyle can sometimes be a challenge. Before we slip into our sparkly party attire, we’re going to be repping Santa hats (and other holiday accessories) at some of the most festive fun-runs this year

balancing fun and run

Holiday fun-runs are a great way to get out into the community, be merry and hold ourselves accountable to sweating it out. These events are a simple 5K run and make for a great catch-up sweat date with a friend. Spread cheer, bring joy to the world (and your local community) and get excited for costume prizes.

Santa Shuffle Vancouver 2010

We missed the santa shuffle one this year – bah humbug! but we’re keen on keeping its spirit lifted. This annual run happens in cities all across Canada and consists of a 5K fun run and a 1K “Elf Walk”.

jingle bell run
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way… literally. On top of coordinating holiday themed costumes, each participant in the jingle bell run ties bells to their laces making the 5K race a carol of its own. The Arthritis Foundation hosts this event annually in cities all across the USA from November 5th until December 31st.

Toronto Santa Speedo Run

santa speedo run
Toronto and Boston take dashing through the snow to a whole other level. December 10th marks this year’s annual runs that are equal parts fun to participate in and to watch. Hundreds of runners take to the city streets in just their favourite festive speedo, Santa hat and beard to boot. Now, we’re big fans of chafe-resistance so in the absence of fabric, might we suggest Bodyglide?

Between office parties and cookie exchanges, any other holiday fun-runs you’re planning to hit up?

There is also a Cupids Undie Run in February in multiple cities – it looks awesome!

There is a Turkey Run in Yarmouth Nova Scotia, on the 26th of December to run off all that Turkey from christmas day!

I second the comment about Cupid’s Undie Run. How could you leave that one off the list when all the lulu stores in DC participate? They’re (practically) a sponsor!

Heck yeah, Hannah! Cupid’s Undie Run should have totally been on this list (even though Valentines Day runs probably aren’t the typical holiday season). I even hear that the one of the Cupid’s Undie Run founders is a lulu ambassador at the Bethesda, MD store! Lots of lulu’s out there running around in their undies for Cupid’s Undie Run!

Going to the Jingle Bell Run today in Baltimore! Of course wearing my Lululremon to the race!

Oooo… I think a jingle bell run would be cool and annoying all at the same time! Have to find me one of those.

I’ll be doing the Resolution Run on December 31st this year (in Toronto). I had thought about the one at midnight but… I’ll want to go out. I’ll feel like I’ve earned it, anyway!
