The 2013 Utah Santa Run helped kick off the holiday season Saturday in downtown Salt Lake City.
Runners dressed in Santa outfits ho-ho-ho’ed their way through a 5K that started and ended at The Gateway Mall. Unique to this 5K, organizers offered the running Santas cookies and milk along the course.
Two more Santa Runs are scheduled: Downtown Ogden on Saturday Nov. 30, and the Shops at Riverwoods in Provo on Saturday Dec. 7. For more information, www.runsanta.com.
