Santa's elfs

We love our volunteers!

Santa's Elfs bring the party to SantaDash! You can help with race registration, handing out waters, taking pictures, and more. If you have a lot of energy and want to cheer our runners on, we want YOU! 

Every Elf must register separately, each person's information must be entered. That means, one registration accommodates one person (i.e. If one person signs up and notes that they are bringing 20 people, we will only count that as 1 volunteer registration.) We encourage our Elfs coming as a group to ensure that they all register to be able to volunteer.

If you are a group of 10 or more, please email

What you get

  • An exclusive SD volunteer t-shirt.

  • Event access and parking

  • A day of fun at the jolliest fun run around!


  • Must be 14 years old or older at the time of the event to volunteer

  • Must stay for entire shift

  • Must sign SCR Participant & Volunteer Waiver

  • Flexibility on your assigned task

  • A smiling face!
