The 2021 Reindeer Run is back on campus!

We weren’t able to gather in person in 2020 due to Covid-19 but we are excited to get together again for the 17th Annual Reindeer Run 5k!

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 11th, 2021

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 if you have not done so already.

Rudolph’s Fun Run

This year we will be having the traditional Rudolph Fun Run but will also be adding the “Polar Olympics” to the course on the campus of CCCC for younger runners. Those wanting to run will take off and run the course, staying completely on site, and finishing by receiving their medal from Rudolph and his helpers! The Polar Olympics will have multiple stations along the course to stop and perform different activities.
