Description

It's a Stafford Christmas tradition!  Run with us on December 10th on a 3-mile course along the rolling hills of Mine Road (note: we said rolling, as in gently rolling...NO Halloween Hill.  You're welcome.).  Kids 12 and under can join the fun in the Reindeer Run! Costumes always encouraged - we've seen Santas, Olafs, reindeer, and snowmen! Bring on the holiday cheer!

We have added a virtual option for athletes who would prefer to participate virtually. Your virtual race will be run on December 10th - anywhere you'd like!  Your results must be submitted by 11:59pm on December 10th.   

All participants receive a long-sleeve t-shirt and a finisher medal! #willrunforbling

Our goals are to promote the importance of CPR and AEDs through education and public awareness campaigns; provide funding for the placement of AEDs in schools and other public facilities; offer scholarships to deserving high school students and encourage medical research and development in the areas of cardiology, neurology, and traumatic brain injury.
