We would like to welcome you to the 6th Annual Christmas in July Races (YES, IT IS HAPPENING IN JUNE!), which we like to call the longest summer holiday running party in the country. Our venue is festively decorated with christmas lights, inflatables, and more and takes place in beautiful Lisle Community Park in Lisle, IL (Just 25 miles outside of Downtown Chicago, IL and easy to get to). We go above and beyond with our fully stocked aid stations and have an amazing group of volunteers ready to help you in any way. You will also receive personalized attention from the race organizers before, during, and after the race.
Our races start on a Friday evening and include a Santa Fun Run to kick it off at 7:30pm, followed by the 5K at 8pm, then the 6-Hour, 12-Hour, 24-Hour Fixed Time Solo and Relay Endurance Runs following at Midnight, 11pm, and 10pm, respectively. Last year, we sold out our 2,3,4-person relay division, so we decided to add a 4,5,6-person 12-Hour relay, and a 4,6,8-person 24-Hour Relay divisions for 2019.
This is a great venue for the entire family. The kids get to run with Santa Claus and receive medals and t-shirts for their participation. Each participant receives awesome swag at the door and top notch finisher medals upon completion. We also hand out unique holiday Nutcrackers as finisher awards. We also have a costume contest for the 5K and fixed-timed events, so if you like, come prepared for that so our amazing volunteers can pick the winners.
If youre running one of our timed events, youre able to camp alongside the trail. Last year, we had 84 camping tents on the grounds and its growing every year. Most decorate their space with holiday decorations, some even bring projection TVs to entertain the kids overnight. Its a blast!
If you have any questions, at all, please contact the race staff at [email protected] and well be happy to answer any of your questions. We look forward to see you in 2019!

What you need to know about Ultramarathon running
An ultramarathon is any running race longer than a traditional marathon of 26.2 miles. Most of them take place on trails, often surrounded by spectacular scenery, and involve continuously stuffing your face to keep your body going mile after mile. At the extreme end, ultras can involve running more than 300km over multiple days through mountains, deserts, jungles and snow. But if this is your first ultra, you might want to start with something a little shorter, like a “gentle” 50km.
