Reindeer Fun Run
7th Annual Reindeer Fun Run Saturday, December 7, 2013
An event for all of North Carolina. The area's most popular running event keeps getting bigger, and keeps getting better! The 5k curves through the historic downtown neighborhoods of Aberdeen, NC with rolling hills and wide turns. The 12ks of Christmas incorporates the 5k route along with a scenic tour of Bethesda, and the Malcolm Blue Farm. Both courses finish on a sloping downhill toward downtown Aberdeen and historic Union Station.
This FUN community event is for everyone from serious runners to recreational walkers, families, and pets. Join in the holiday cheer with a run or walk and the Reindeer Fun Run After Party featuring a Kids Zone.

We are thrilled that the Sandhills Race Series, born at a Reindeer Fun Run meeting in 2010, has grown to be such a success.

We know it is early, but believe it or not May is when we usually start sharing the Reindeer Fun Run on event calendars, creating forms, and getting the website updated. And May is just around the corner. But in order to do that, we have to have our logo figured out. We have changed the logo each year, and we want to continue that tradition. We’d love to know what you think we should do to this year’s logo!

One of the great local athletic events, the Woodlake Triathlon, is at an end. It is sad to see an event that did so much to promote a community has been ended because of that very same community. We received this notification yesterday…
We want to make sure everyone gets a shirt! If you didn’t get a T-Shirt on race-day you can pick it up at buyCalls, located at 164 NW Broad Street in Southern Pines, NC (upstairs between Morgan Miller & Framer’s Cottage). Missed awards and 12k Finisher Medals are also available at buyCalls.

Packet pick-up starts Friday at noon. Your best bet is to let the first rush get through and come between 1:00 and 8:00 (please don’t come early, we won’t be ready). This year we have moved packet pick-up to Page Memorial Fellowship Hall which is right at the starting line on 104 South Poplar Street. We will also be collecting Cans & Coats for K2 Solutions Annual Drive at packet-pickup. Please bring what you can.
