Christmas Town FAQs

Do we get a free ticket to Christmas Town with our registration?  No. However, there will be discount coupons distributed in each of the runner’s bags valid for $5 off a single-night admission ticket to Christmas Town.

Can I stay in the park on race day to see Christmas Town? No.  Once the race concludes, participants will be asked to exit the premises.  Christmas Town will not be open until later that evening. 

Do I need to buy a pass to Busch Gardens in order to run in the race? No, a pass to Busch Gardens is not required.  However, all runners must pre-register for the race by visiting or by mailing in a registration form. Mail-in registration is $5 more than online pricing.

Do Busch Gardens pass members get a discount on the registration fee?  No. The mission of the race is to raise money for charity.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the local Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots.
