If your idea of holiday fun is stumbling around Manhattan dressed like a fratty Claus, then mark your calendar for SantaCon 2013. If you are looking for a low-key, fun alternative that will benefit local charities, check out the Rockapulco 5k Santa Shuffle.

Rockaway’s running club was founded in 2001 as the Rockaway Gliders and was dedicated to the sport of boardwalk running. Although Rockaway is still without a boardwalk, the 5k Shuffle is planned for December 14th in Bay Ridge, and December 21st in Rockaway. The Rockaway race this year will be a 5k loop starting and ending at Beach 102nd Street. There will be a tent with beer, food and music set up at the finish line.

Register here for either race.
