Get ready to dress as a jolly fat man for the 2021 Santa Run in Flint.

Back in my younger days, I use to love living in Michigan because we really get the full treatment when it comes to the weather. Nowadays, old bitter me is not a fan of the cold, wintery weather, however, events like this still get me excited to go outside.

The 2021 Santa Run with the YMCA is such a cool thing for the family to take part in. Each person running a race receives a Santa suit to wear along with a finisher medal. On top of that, racers can enjoy all the milk and cookies they can handle. Don't worry if you're on a diet. You will be dressed as Santa and that's what he eats...commit to the role.
