Be a part of the 2019 Costume Contest and stand out!
You’ll be judged for originality, enthusiasm, and difficulty to run in.
Voting for your favorite costume takes place LIVE on the stage inside Santa's Village.
Judges will score you from 1-10 (judges are on the left as you cross the finish line). Make sure your bib is visible to the judges as you pass the finish line. If you think they missed you visit the VIP tent after you finish. Cut off times for judging is 15 mins before your Costume Contest Ceremony begins. *Half Marathon runners and Relay runners are all under the same category when it comes to picking a Costume Contest Winner.
