Give Back During Glendale’s 7th Annual Santa Hustle 5K, Half Marathon and Kids’ Dash
By Claire Natale - Wednesday Dec 14, 2022
The charity beneficiary is Glendale Firefighter Charities, who helps fulfill needs within the community. Join the fun on Sunday, December 18 at Westgate Entertainment District.

Registration is now open for the Santa Hustle Glendale 5K, Half Marathon and Kids’ Dash. The 7th annual race will take place on Sunday, December 18 at Westgate Entertainment District, 6770 N. Sunset Boulevard. The Kids Dash kicks off at 7:30 a.m., followed by the half marathon at 8 a.m. and the 5K at 8:15 a.m. A portion of race proceeds will be donated to Glendale Firefighter Charities, who works to support the efforts of other local charities as well as elicits help when needed to fulfill community needs.
“The holiday season is the perfect time to give back to your community, and Santa Hustle is proud to be partnering with a charity that supports this - through programs that support community causes and programs,” said SHRS race founder Aaron Del Mar. “Your participation in the Santa Hustle Glendale will add to the contribution we can offer to this invaluable organization.”
Cookie and candy stations, along with holiday music and cheer, will abound along the Santa Hustle and Kids Dash course – and immediately following the race, participants can jingle all the way to an awards ceremony! Thousands of people participate in the Santa Hustle across the country each year, and now the race is also offered virtually!

Participants in both races will receive a Santa Hustle beanie, cozy hoodie, and a finisher medal. Participants can also purchase a Mrs. Claus package, a full Santa suit or a Santa shirt during registration.

Volunteers are needed! Santa needs helpers to distribute packets, hand out snacks and check gear during the event. All volunteers receive an elf shirt, elf hat, food and drink - and Santa’s eternal gratitude. For more information, visit, call 847-829-4536, or email [email protected].
