I'm pretty sure there would be a thread somewhere about this, but sadly I have no idea how to locate it. My question is: Has anyone on here ever participated in this? I am trying to decide if it is something worth trying once. Thank you in advance and again, I apologize if there is already a thread about this.

Santa Hustle is on the 9th..will be here soon :D We cant wait, we have done it before and excited to do it again. There will be the serious runners, but, lots more groups/families that are there to have fun and get great pics inside the park. (My credit card has a very awesome pic of a snow covered Maverick)

Like I said, there will be serious runners, but tons more that will simply leisurely jog/walk and enjoy the park. It's funny, when I tell folks we are going to CP, of course, I get..."are they still open? Isn't it too cold for rides"

You get a long sleeve shirt, a Santa hat and beard and they have M&ms and cookies along the route. We have seen Ralphies Pink Bunny suit, Santa and Ms Clause, The Grinch, Buddy the Elf, Snowmen, The Moose out front (should have told ya), Eeyore,....so many costumes...people just have fun.

Anything else...just ask!

Weather forecast -for now- is showing 39' but is looking to be clear and dry. Let us know if you decide to go....its tons of fun....and don't forget....there's COOKIES!

Thank you so much for responding to my question. My husband and I are seriously thinking about it. We don’t have a group or know anyone else going so we will be just two old people in our 50’s, but I’ve always wanted to try a 5K (We are avid power walkers) and I love Cedar Point. I can’t think of a better place to check a 5K off my bucket list. :-)

I did this last year, and had a little trouble. I will not Run Fast. I will take my Fast Walk like I do during the Regular Season. I just will take my time in the "Santa Hustle" I forgot if people can take pictures?

As someone who has ran many 5ks, there is nothing wrong with being a walker at all. 5ks are meant to be fun. Just don’t be that person and walk in the center of the midway while runners are trying to get around you. If you’re gonna walk, step off to the side and walk. I won’t be able to do it this year since i have other plans.

Just in case anyone is interested in this, Santa Hustle folks sent an info email out today and included a $5 coupon code. FFSH18 takes $5 off your registration.

**I don't benefit from this code...just love to save money and passing it on to anyone who may want to use it**

I've heard many good things about it! It seems like people have fun! Plus you get to see the park during the winter a little bit! Castaway Bay is also open that Saturday night with special rates!

Was a great SUNNY unwindy day inside and through the park. Chatted with alot of new pointer people :)

Sadly, I did not get to go this year. I really wanted to very badly, but had another obligation I couldn’t get out of. Definitely planning on it next year. Plus I’m excited I at least have winter chill out to look forward to. Thank you for asking though. :-)
