Southern Pines Business

One of the great results we have seen from our Reindeer Fun Runners Survey is the positive economic impact the event has on Southern Pines.  51% of all responders said they stayed in Southern Pines after the event to shop and dine.  With almost 2,000 runners + 1,000 fans, that's a lot of people, and a great thing for the merchants of Southern Pines. Runners from everywhere... Many of our runne...

Scrambled Egg Nog Jog

For those of you who didn't know - the Egg Nog Jog got off to an earlier than expected start when the siren accidentally burst when handing over the megaphone.  Those kids were primed and ready, and they took off fast.  It was a little more crowded than we intended, but it sure was fun seeing the whole herd running together.  Hopefully they all had a great time!

Chip timing

Always trying to be on the cutting edge, the Reindeer Fun Run will use Chronotrack timing this year.  Chronotrack is a disposable "chip" that attaches to your shoe and will be adhered to the race bib of those signing up to be timed.  This will save time the morning of the race since you will already have your timing device.  You can watch a video about Chronotrack here to learn more.
