Reindeer Run 5K & Family Fun Run

We ran the race last year and LOVED it. Here are a few tips to know before you go:

1. Bring the WHOLE family!  This is a FUN RUN – all the kids will enjoy this themed run with costumes, games, and lights.

2. It’s a FUN RUN!!  There is a timed race that starts before the fun run, so let those more serious runners go first.  I encourage you to take your time and enjoy the evening, don’t feel rushed to get through the race as quickly as you can.  Don’t feel rushed and even walk it if you want to.

3. Dress Up!! Get festive – put on a fun Holiday shirt, grab some reindeer ears and dress up for this race!

4. Arrive Early!! There are various booths, games, & activities to do with the kids before the race, so make sure you get there early enough to check it out.

5. Go as a Group!!  The more people you have, the more FUN this run will be! Go back to tip #3 and coordinate dressing up together!

Enjoy this great race! It’s so much fun!!
