Event website

Thousands of Santas will hit the streets of South Portland during the Santa Hustle 5K. Runners and walkers alike are warmly invited to join this magical event. In addition to loads of holiday fun, Santa Hustle also gives back and has partnered with Easterseals Maine – an organization dedicated to providing exceptional services for people with disabilities or special needs, and their families.

Santa Hustlers will jingle all the way to cookie and candy stations along the course to fuel their holiday cheer! And afterwards, an after party will include awards, medals for top finishers, milk and cookies! Santa Hustlers get a Santa hat, beard, and a finisher’s medal included with registration – and new for 2019 – men’s, women’s or unisex hoodies, along with the option to add a Santa shirt, full Santa suit, or Mrs. Claus packages. The holiday fun only grows every year! Ho-ho-ho, who wouldn’t want to go?

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