Sport your favorite pair of antlers and trot this festive 5k race. I had been looking forward to this race all year. After all, who doesn’t want to run like a reindeer? Hosted at Fortitude Outdoor, this race offers a challenging course and lots of fun.
A windy, hilly 5k course that takes runners through field and forest. The 1st and 3rd mile were mostly on uneven grass. The 2nd mile is nearly entirely hills in a small wooded area. The course was well marked with white buckets and volunteer elves.
Registration cost included a long sleeve t-shirt, a pair of hand warmers, and photos with Santa prior to the race. The first 50 people to register also received a bonus bag.
In addition to items, this race was full of holiday spirit. From fully dressed reindeer to elves.
Awards were given to the overall male and female as well as the top 3 in each age group. On the sign up website, it says that the awards would be ornament bulbs. However, that’s not what was given out. I was slightly disappointed because the bulbs looked beautiful but still excited and enjoyed the run.
