Due to Governor Beshear’s recent Coronavirus restrictions on 11-24-20, the City of Owensboro will not be issuing the necessary permits for us to host the in-person 5k Reindeer Run/Walk on December 5th.  We are transitioning to a VIRTUAL EVENT.  Registration closes Saturday, December 5th at midnight.


With our virtual race, you can run or walk anywhere, anytime between now and December 5th.  It will no longer be a timed event, so no need for a race bib and maybe use this time to increase your running speed and win that medal next year!  You can still be entered to win a door prize; winners will be notified after December 5th.


This family-friendly event is open to runners and walkers of all types.  Participants are encouraged to come dressed in Christmas attire (ugly sweaters, Santa hats, bells, fun socks, etc.).  Prizes awarded to best face mask, best dressed, and various race winner divisions.  Visit with Santa, enjoy hot chocolate, and win prizes as we kick off the Christmas season.  Families welcome!  Work groups/teams welcome!  School teams welcome! 

Don’t wait…sign up early!  Registration fee increases after 11-15-20.  Online registration closes 11-30-20 at midnight.  Registration will also be available on race day (on site only).

Reindeer Run/Walk entry fee includes a long sleeve t-shirt and entry for door prize drawings.  Child discounts are available.  (Due to t-shirt vendor deadlines, there is no guarantee of receiving a t-shirt for registrants signing up after 11-15-20, but we will try our best to provide you with a shirt by ordering extras!

Don’t forget about the Reindeer Dash…for children 7 and under.  It's a short dash down the main event strip.  Dress your little one up in Christmas attire and enjoy a fun dash with Santa to the finish line.  All little runners will receive their own runner’s bib and winner’s medal at the finish line.  The Reindeer Dash has a separate entry fee of $7 and starting time at 9:00 am.  (Event t-shirts not included.)
