Let's kick off the holiday season with our friends in the town of Howey-in-the-Hills as we run or walk the Reindeer Dash 5K on beautiful Lakeshore Blvd. The route takes runners on paved roads with a short run through Sarah Maude Mason Preserve for a little off road fun. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and sneak peaks at the race swag.

Participant donations along with part of the proceeds from the race will go to the Howey-in-the-Hills Community Church Food Pantry. Please consider making a donation of any kind and / or brining non perishable items to packet pickup or race morning.
