Reindeer Run 2014

The town you think you know... loves holiday Costumes, Carolers, Hot Chocolate, Candy Canes, and Santa!

Be a part of Lancaster’s favorite costumed 5k Fun Run & Walk with the 2014 Reindeer Run, brought to you by Lancaster Alive.

At 11 a.m. on December 13, 2014 grab your best Santa hat and beard, elf outfit, reindeer antlers, or whatever costume the holiday spirit inspires you to wear and run, trot, prance, or walk your way along the 5k course. This self-timed 5k will have mileage markers along the way for those wishing to participate at a lesser distance. Along the course, runners will be treated to Christmas carolers and other holiday festivities. Upon completion of the race, participants will be treated to hot chocolate and candy canes. Santa will also be available for anyone who wishes to partake in his unique photo opportunity! Awards will be given to those with the best costumes, including: the “Best Costume”, the “Best Group Costume,” and the “That Person has to be Cold” award, among others.

Participants should plan to bring a toy to the race which will be donated to Maywood Mission to give to families in need for the holidays.

The course is flat and suitable for runners of all ages and skill level. Children 12 and under accompanied by a registered adult are free, however no shirt will be provided. Children 12 and over accompanying a registered adult must pay fee and register.

Like all things promoted by Lancaster Alive, the focus of this race is FUN while helping the community. For this reason, chip timing will not be provided and all awards will revolve around the participants’ costumes. For those wishing to race competitively, we still welcome you to participate and a large clock will be provided for you to check your time.


Waiver and Release

I know that running a road race is a potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter and run unless I am medically able and properly trained. I know that although police protection will be provided (at major intersections), there will be traffic on the course route. I assume the risk running in this race for myself and any minor accompanying me. In submitting my registration and tendering my entry fee, I hereby for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators or anyone that might make a claim on my behalf, covenant not to sue, and waive release and discharge all organizations associated with the race.


Pre-registration has closed. You can still register the day of the event. See you there!
