5K Reindeer Run/Walk - Student in Team of 4 or More (Age 23 & Under)
About This Activity
We're getting ugly! Wear your ugliest holiday sweater to the 3rd Annual Reindeer Run for your chance to win prizes! Our route for the 5K run/walk starts at beautiful Sunset Park, winds through the charming city streets, and ends back at Sunset Park for awards in categories of fastest finishers and best holiday dressed! Dress your dog for more chances to win prizes!
Children can register for the 100 yard Grinch Sprint (ages 1-12). The fastets sprinter will not receive an award, but will hopefully catch and "Cage the Grinch" in this fun dash!
