About This Activity

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

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 as well as pictures with Santa! 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.
