Kick off the holiday season by joining us for jolly jog or jaunt (5K - 3.1 miles) through the streets of downtown Charleston! This event is for reindeer of all fitness levels. There will be awards for kids 6 & under and adults to 99. If your Reindeer isn't as fit as Rudolph, walk the course and enjoy all the festivities along the way. Either way, dress in your holiday costumes to win fabulous prizes! After the run, join us for festivities including music, food and drinks, as well as visits from Santa Claus, Rudolph and friends! The Reindeer Run welcomes dogs, strollers, wagons and wheelchairs, but all must start at the back of the pack as a courtesy to competitive runners.

The proceeds from the Reindeer Run are benefitting the campaign for the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital and the Charitable Society of Charleston Endowment with the Coastal Community Foundation.
