Red noses and jingle bells will be handed out to all runners, but donning your own festive attire is strongly encouraged. The more reindeer antlers, ugly sweaters and other holiday gear, the merrier.

Also, if you're asking Santa for new sneakers this year, try on some shoes from Brooks. The brand is letting runners test them out on the 3-mile run along the Manayunk Canal and will provide post-race treats in the Philadelphia Runner location on Main Street.

The shop also is where check-in will take place, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Then at 9 a.m., the Rudolph Run will start at Main and Gay streets.

Afterward, runners are encouraged to hang out in Manayunk. Many neighborhood spots will offer deals to Rudolph Run participants.
