Disposable Santa Suits for Santa Dashes and Pub Crawls are a besting selling item at Christmastime. Last month we had the pleasure of supplying The Westport Santa Dash with 1000 disposable Santa suits and 100 elf hats for the runners to wear. Raceday Timing Solutions is the organization that held the Westport Santa Dash on December 7, 2013 in Kansas City, MO and their idea to use the costumes really paid off. Participation was great and for a worthy cause.
Santa Dashes are a popular way to raise money for good causes. The beneficiaries of this dash were the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City and Operation Breakthrough, the largest early childhood education and social service facility in Missouri.
Everyone that registered for the 5k race received a one size fits all Santa Suit that included Santa’s hat, pants, belt, and coat. Kids aged 12 and under that ran the Elf Dash received a complementary elf hat.
Many of the people that wore the suit decided to enhance the look with a few eye catching accessories. It’s all about making it fun, especially when the weather is really cold.
Almost everyone wore our Santa suit. For the few that didn’t, many of them were still dressed for the occasion. We especially love this funny take on “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer. Check it out:
All different types of runs, 5K races and mini marathons happen all year round. Wearing costumes adds to the fun. We were happy to be the supplier for this dash and many others.
