Amazing Santacolor 5K Run & Walk

“Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” on November 9 at the 2019 Amazing Santacolor 5K Run & Walk at Town East Mall. This event marks the arrival of Santa to Town East Mall for the holiday season and all proceeds benefit teachers and students in Mesquite ISD.

This is a great opportunity to make lasting memories with friends and family in the community. You will love the color powder stations along the course and holiday themed fun including snow machines, photos with Santa and much more.

WE'VE ADDED CHIP TIMING!! The event is fun for both the serious runner or for those that just want to walk with friends and family. All participants will have the option to be "chip timed" this year and will have two start times for the timing folks and the walkers/joggers not interested in being timed.
