We’re probably biased, but our Santa’s Elf running costume is perfect for a holiday or Christmas run. Just because you’re a runner, doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun, wearing costumes for running. Some of our favorite races are perfect for running in costume, in fact – many of them actually encourage it…

If you’re looking for running costumes ideas that you can actually run in, you’ve come to the right place. Luckily, we have plenty ideas for costumes for running. Consider this your very own running costume guide.

 

Santa Running CostumeThere are three jobs available to an Elf. You can make shoes at night while an old cobbler sleeps…but it’s not exactly the most rewarding work. You can bake cookies in a tree. But it’s dangerous having an oven in an oak during dry season…  But the third job. Well, the third job makes being an Elf worthwhile. Some call it “the show” or the “big dance”. It’s the profession every Elf aspires to. And that’s to build toys in Santa’s workshop, and run races… spreading Christmas cheer.
