34th Annual Santa Scamper

to Benefit St. Joseph’s Pantry


What: A run or walk that starts prior to the Annual Appleton Christmas Parade at the corner of College Avenue and State Street and proceeds  down College Avenue to Drew Street, finishing at City Park.

When: Tuesday, November 21, 2017. (2016 – Race starts at 6:40pm (Please note the NEW start time!))

Where: The race starts at the corner of College Avenue and State street in downtown Appleton

Course Notes: *Updated 10/6/16* There IS a change to the course. The start will remain the same, but due to Jones park being shut down because of construction of the Fox Cities Exhibition Center, the event will now finish at City Park. Please keep this in mind when choosing where to park for the event.

Important notice 11/14/16:

We regret to inform you, the Santa Scamper is usually a one-mile race, due to Jones park construction the Appleton Police Department shorten the 2016 event to 0.8 miles long. The event will still start at state st. and college ave. and finish at City Park.

We recently became aware of the adjustments to the course. If we had known, we would have advertised the distance change far ahead of time. We are just as disappointed as you and we are continuing to work with the police department to see if this can be adjusted back to a 1 mile event.
