    RACE CHARITY

    • The 2022 Santa Hustle® Galveston is supporting Galveston County Food Bank. When a local family is going through financial crisis or other obstacles, food is often the first necessity they seek. The Galveston County Food Bank’s mission is to provide easy access to nutritional food for the economically disadvantaged, under served populations of Galveston County through a network of participating charitable organizations, schools, and food bank-managed programs focused on serving vulnerable populations. We also provide these individuals and families with resources beyond food, connecting them to other agencies and services that can assist with needs such as child care, job placement, family therapy, healthcare and other resources that can help get them back on their feet and on the path to recovery and/or self-sufficiency.

    TOYS FOR TOTS

    • Santa Hustle® is a Toys for Tots official drop off spot: Please bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Santa Hustle for Toys for Tots! The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

    HALF AND 5K SWAG

    • Santa is bringing coziness to the swag this year. Cozy up with this year's Comfy Unisex Hoodie (suggest to go up a size for more coziness!) as well as a Santa Hustle Beanie, and a Finisher Medal that will make you feel like you are snuggled up while the snow is falling all around you.

    REFUNDS

    • 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. Refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions and/or pandemics. Santa appreciates your understanding in this matter. 

    2022 SANTA HUSTLE RACE SERIES

    The Santa Hustle® Race Series consists of multiple races in the cities of Chicago IL, Sevierville TN, Indianapolis IN, Atlantic City, NJ, Galveston TX, Roseville, CA, Glendale, AZ, Nashville, TN, Atlanta, GA, and Virtually! Be a part of thousands of Santa’s running across the nation!

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
