Reindeer Fun Run Is Great for Whole Family
Event organizers are expecting the 2010 Reindeer Fun Run to be bigger and better than ever.
Set for Saturday, Dec. 4, the fourth annual Reindeer Fun Run is a community event for all abilities ages and purposes - kids, pets, families, serious runners and braggers are welcome.
The 5k-10k Run/Walk and the half-mile Kids' Egg Nog Jog are followed by a post-race party and the Southern Pines Christmas parade.
The fun gets under way with packet pick-up from 7:45 to 8:45 a.m. with the 5k and 10k fun runs starting at 9 a.m. The half-mile egg nog jog takes place at 10:15 a.m. with post-race festivities going on from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
All races start and finish at the Southern Pines Downtown Park.
The 5k curves through historic downtown and the Weymouth Woods neighborhoods of Southern Pines. The new 10K incorporates the 5k route along with a beautiful tour of Southern Pines Horse Country. Both courses are USATF certified and chip timed.
The post-race party includes pony rides, balloons, music, food, games and a visit from Santa Claus. In addition, Peyton Tochterman will be performing in the park during the party.
The $15 or $25 registration fee includes T-shirt and goodies.
The mission of the Reindeer Fun Run is to bring the community together to have fun and raise money for the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sandhills, which receives 100 percent of the proceeds.
