For the 15th year, the Reindeer Ramble will provide a great community-building atmosphere that brings people together from all walks of life.  This event is a strong source of the YMCA's fundraising effort that helps to provide assistance to children and families through our financial assistance program.  Participants who register for the Reindeer Ramble should feel proud to know that their registration is helping to fund our Annual Campaign efforts that impact thousands of lives in our community!

Through the generosity of donors, our financial assistance program offers families a way to apply for assistance on a sliding fee scale that’s designed to fit each individual's financial situation. Your support makes this possible. No one is turned away due to the inability to pay.  Our services are available to everyone and proceeds from this event will help provide scholarships for children and families to attend YMCA programs and memberships. 

We encourage you to wear your favorite holiday sweater, Santa suit or “holiday festive” attire and get into the spirit of this holiday fun run/walk - GET CREATIVE! You may register as an individual runner/walker or with a group as a team. Team of 5 or more will receive a discounted registration fee.  Teams can consist of adult and child members. We will recognize the top finishers in each category, as well as those race teams that celebrated the holiday spirit most brightly.

Race Day
Saturday, December 11, 9:00am - Keeneland Race Course
4201 Versailles Rd
Lexington, KY US 40510

Packet Pickup - UPDATED!
Friday, December 10 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. - High Street YMCA
Packets will also be available on race day starting at 7:30 a.m. at Keeneland

All participants will receive a commemorative Reindeer Ramble shirt with registration.  However, in order to guarantee your shift for Packet Pickup, you must register by November 24, 2021.  Those registering after this date risk not getting their shirt until a final order is made after race day, in which those shirts may be picked up once they are received back from the printers.  When registering after 11/24/21, you'll be able to select your shirt size during registration; however, if the inventory for that shirt size is sold out, you'll either need to select a size that is in stock in order to receive by Packet Pickup, or select a LATE shirt size that will arrive at a later date.  Notifications will be sent out to anyone who orders a late shirt.

Race Route
CLICK HERE for this year's 5K race route.
CLICK HERE for this year's 10K course. The 10K course will be running the 5K route twice to accumulate the 10K distance.  The 5K participants will need to stay to the right side of the finish line upon completion in order to have a maximized running lane for 10K participants as they begin their second lap of the course.

Awards for the top three male and female finishers in each race will be presented as soon as possible after the race. We will also award the top three male and female finishers in each age group will also be presented.  Lastly, awards will be presented to the top 3 overall teams.  Team awards will be determined by calculating the fastest 5 times on each race team.  The 3 fastest team times will be the winners. 
5K Age Groups: 10 & under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, .30-34 ... 70-74, 75-79, 80 & over.
