Oklahomans are invited to get in the holiday spirit and get moving with the SandRidge Santa Run in downtown Oklahoma City on Saturday.
The certified 5k starts at 9 a.m., and the one-mile Fun Run begins at 9:30 a.m. for runners of all ages. Children 8 and younger can participate in the Kids' Dash with Santa, which begins at 10 a.m.
All runs begin and end at Leadership Square, 211 N Robinson.
The top three finishers in the 5k will win cash prizes and the top three finishers in each 5-year age bracket will receive a medal. Registered 5k runners who dress up in holiday costumes may qualify for the costume contest. Judges will award $500 to the first place winner, $300 to the second place winner and $200 to the third place winner.
Registration fees are $40 for the 5k and $20 for the fun run. A Fun Run Family Pack is available for up to five people of any age at a cost of $75.
