Cedar Point hosts first ever Santa Hustle, offering a unique view to runners


Cedar Point hosted their first ever Santa Hustle earlier today. More than 2,000 runners gathered at Cedar Point to run through the park. Runners were offered a unique view at the park during the off season, plus an exclusive look at the park’s brand new attraction currently being installed for the 2013 season.

“The runners had a chance to see all of their favorite rides, attractions and the Cedar Point Beach in a different light,” Cedar Point marketing manager Bryan Edwards said. “It also gave them an exclusive first look of GateKeeper months before we open this mammoth coaster to the public in May.”

Brian Kaminski was the first runner to finish the half marathon with a time of 1 hour, 20 minutes, and 10 seconds. Sean Kane was the first runner to complete the 5k with a time of 17 minutes and 37 seconds.

Cedar Point will open for the 2013 season on May 11th, with it’s brand new wing coaster, GateKeeper. For more information about Cedar Point, visit the official website.
