Roy HornThe annual Las Vegas Great Santa Run was held on Saturday with both Seigfried and Roy in attendance, in spite of Doctors advice that Roy skip the trek due to recent recovery from the flu. Roy overruled his doctor’s orders and said he couldn’t disappoint the Santa teams according to the Sun. "So I decided to ignore what the doctor said and showed up anyway. Then once I was here, why not go for it?"  According to the Sun "Horn made the trek Saturday without having to lean on anyone or even using a cane as he did last year." He also walked twice the distance that he had the year before.  According to Robin Leach, this was due to the fact that they missed the turn for the shorter route. "Somehow we missed the turn at the half-mile mark and we continued on down the marked 5K run. Only when three Metro motorcycle officers wondered why we were going the long way did we realize we’d overshot the turn. Roy was too busy cracking jokes, posing for photos with fans and signing autographs — even for babies — to notice."
