About This Activity

The Junior League of Panama City's annual 10K, 5K Reindeer Race and 1/2 mile takes place at the scenic St. Andrews State Park located at Panama City Beach, FL. This road race follows a winding path throughout the beautiful state park passing by Alligator Lake and throughout the campgrounds which border beautiful St. Andrews Bay. There are lots of winding curves and the December date ensures cooler weather with less humidity. This course is certified by the USTF and will be professionally timed by Runners Edge Race Timing for fast results.
**NEW THIS YEAR** This year we have added a 10K option for all those long distance runners looking to race this particularly beautiful course! Prizes and medals will also immediately follow the 10K and 5K portion of the race this year.
The race is the cumulative event for all of the area Girls on the Run programs so lots of novice runners take part. An enjoyable course ensures families, teams, walkers, and strollers are equally good participants. Please come out and run with us as we support GOTR in Bay county!
There will be trophies and medals for top finishers and all children age 14 and under will receive a finisher medal. Custom high quality race medals are awarded for the overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers, as well as the top 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers for males and females in the following age categories: (8-10), (11-13), (14-16), (17-19), (20-24), (25-29), (30-34), (35-39), (40-44), (45-49), (50-59), (60+). Custom finisher medals will be awarded to all finishers (age 14 and under) as they cross the finish of the 5K, 10K as well as the 1/2 mile.
This race is part of the non-profit Junior League of Panama City's fundraising campaign which supports many different programs in the North Florida area. Come out and be jolly as a spirit award is given annually for the most spirited costumed runners or team!
