Think the Santa running costume is the perfect costume for running your holiday race? Here’s what you’ll need…

 

Santa Running Costume:
* {one} red tank top
* {one} red Sparkle Athletic skirt
* {one} hot pink (or red) Santa Hat
* {one} pair of hot pink (or red) Sparkle Athletic Sparkle Sleeves
* {one} pair red & white striped Sparkle Athletic Race Legs
* optional: pink or red running shoes (while they aren’t necessary, pink or red running shoes really are the “icing on the cake”)
