Grab your running shoes, the Santa Run is going virtual!
Each year, our family-friendly holiday run brings young and old, and even pets, to downtown Oklahoma City for a festive 5K. In 2020, the run is coming to you! The virtual Saints Santa Run can be completed on a treadmill from the comfort of your home, around your neighborhood, on your favorite jogging trail, or on our suggested route in Midtown, the home of our new run sponsor SSM Health – St. Anthony Hospital.
This virtual 5K is a great way to stay active and spread holiday cheer, without spreading germs. Sign up online and complete your run anytime, anywhere during the month of December.
Early registration ends on November 20! Sign up by November 13 to get your commemorative 2020 Saints Santa Run t-shirt and finisher medal sent to you in our first round of shipments.

I can’t get enough of the incredible scents from OKCollective Candle Co.. I don’t know what kind of magic they put in there, but it gets me every time!
E A T Cafe Contemporary has been my recent favorite place to eat. The food is delicious while still being healthy. I particularly love their Vegan Mushroom Reuben - and I’m not a vegan!

I moved to OKC from NYC so one of my favorite things to do it just walk around Midtown, enjoying a cup of coffee and visiting all the cool local shops in the area.
