Event Details

Celebrate Christmas in Arizona with the award winning 12k’s of Christmas in Gilbert! The event offers a 12K, 6K and 1.2K distances. Free pet adoption event with over twenty rescue groups!

12K Run: The 12k (12k = 7.5 miles) is US Track & Field Certified and starts and ends at Gilbert’s Freestone District Park with an out and back route along Western Powerline Trail. It’s a flat, scenic trail– mainly running on packed gravel past farms and behind the Riparian area. Look for horses, cows, goats, tortoises – it’s a bit of rural America in the big city!

6K Run/Walk: The 6K course follows the 12K route with an earlier turnaround.

1.2K Run/Walk: The 1.2K course is held entirely within the park!

Don’t forget there are also costume prizes!

– Best Dressed Pets Gifts for the top 3 from each event.
– Best Decorated Entry Gifts for the top 3 best decorated entries in the 1.2k.
– Most Christmas Spirit
