The 19th Annual Reindeer Run 5k is currently open for registration!

Join us again this year, December 9, 2023!

Our USATF certified course will start at Central Carolina Community College and head towards downtown Pittsboro and then loop back to finish at CCCC.

Saturday December 9th, 2023

5k will start at 8am for all runners. Race Day registration will end at 7:45. Please arrive early to make sure you are able to pick up your race bib (we highly recommend attending an packet pickup event provided the week of the race) and find a parking spot.

Rudolph’s Fun Run

We will again be offering Rudolph’s Fun Run, a short race for our younger runners that stays on the CCCC campus for approximately 3/4mile run. Runners receive their medal (and sometimes additional goodies) from Rudolph and some helpers once they cross the finish line! This run starts at 9am. Fun Run registrants do not need to attend packet pick up events, all items will be given out the day of the race.

Event Sponsorship Opportunities Available

Get on board with this great community event by becoming an event sponsor. The race may be a ways away, but we are already receiving sponsorship applications. Take advantage of being advertised for a longer period of time by committing to sponsorship now!

Proceeds from this event are granted to various organizations to promote physical activity in Chatham County.
