_ The 2020 Downtown Christmas 5K Run:
The Sportspectrum Tradition that will get everyone in the Christmas Spirit!! Our unique 3 loop course (3.1 miles) takes you through, past, and amongst tens of thousands of Christmas Lights lining the course, lots of Christmas decorations, & Christmas music.
Come out and join us for a HO HO HO good time.
This year Sportspectrum is partnering with Operation Santa Clause and will be collecting toys and donations during packet pick up and on race day. Please help us brighten the lives of some of those children who are less fortunate and donate a *new toy or make a monetary donation to Operation Santa Clause.
Since 1984, Operation Santa Claus, which is a joint effort between Shreveport Fire and Police
Departments along with Townsquare Media Radio Stations, has provided tens of thousands of
LOCAL less fortunate children with Christmas presents. In most cases, the gifts from
Operation Santa Claus were the only gifts these children received and for some, their only
positive experience with law enforcement and fire fighters.
