2017 Course Improvements

Every year we review the Reindeer Fun Run and ask ourselves, "How can we improve?" We think we have a pretty good one this year. Since the event is getting so big, we need more space at both the start and finish lines for crowds to set up, watch and cheer. To accomplish this, we've made a small course change that adds a cool run along the tracks on Fayetteville and Blue streets. This in turn al...

5k Moved to 9:30

Every year there is one issue we have for certain runners... When 12kers merge with the 5k course, many of them run into a wall of walkers. We try to make sure everyone is aware, we mark the route with signs, and remind everyone at the starting line. But, sometimes people are just having too much fun and forget that quick runners may be coming up behind them. So, this year we've decided to less...

One of the things we look most forward to is the names that our team participants come up ...

Signal over Murphy Insurance

Gingerbread man signal over Nationwide Insurance
We were out and about in Southern Pines, and saw this Gingerbread Man "signal" over Mike Murphy's Nationwide Insurance office. It looks like someone must need help! Sponsor Murphy Insurance is of course a resource for that, but what do you think the signal is all about?

Reindeer at the Sly Fox

Sly Fox Reindeer at Phone Booth
We just received a photo someone took while running past The Sly Fox last night. It appears to be our reindeer about to go into the old English phone booth. Interesting. The Sly Fox has been a sponsor for years, so it is no wonder the reindeer is visiting, but we wonder what he's going to do in the phone booth? Call Santa? I guess we will have to wait and see...
