About the Event

20% of registration revenue will be given to the Green Beret Foundation whose mission is "to answer the call of the Green Berets and their families so that they can suceed in their next mission."

Operation GREEN SANTA is Green Beret Fitness's annual Christmas Event focussing more on fun, food, and drink and less on miles.


Minimum Distance will be 6+ miles.

Start Time: 1000hrs

Start Location: Tamiami Tap.

Finish Time: 1700hrs (feel free to stay in the finish location and eat/drink more!)

Finish Location: Tamiami Tap.


This Event will be completed on Saturday 11th December 1000AM. The start and Finish location is Tamiami Tap. If you're going to be drinking alcohol, plan for a ride or Uber home.

Your Team Leader will be issued a list of checkpoints in the morning.

Checkpoints (CP) will include bars where you get a drink...or drink(s)...and food. If we're honest, it's probably just going to be a bar navigation exercise with a backpack on. Or no backpack. You decide.

This event is about having fun, getting outside, working together, and fitness...a little bit. There will be food and beverages to consume and workouts to complete. Expect the Unexpected.




***All members must be wearing an item of Christmas cheer.***
