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.
Participant donations along with part of the proceeds from the race will go to The Howey-in-the-Hills Friends of the Library, Inc.
What do you get with your entry? All registered participants receive a time chipped race bib, jingle bells for their shoes, a candy cane, custom high quality race shirt, finish line medal, post race hot cocoa and snacks and free draft beer or soft drink ticket from our finish line sponsor JB Boondocks!

Team/ Family Discount!! Bring the whole gang and take advantage of our family pricing when 4 or more members register under the same Team / Family name. Teams of 4 or more will receive $5 off each participant. Upon creating the team, the first 3 registrants will pay full price, once the team minimum of 4 members has been reached, the previous 3 registrations will receive an automatic $5 refund. All registrations to the same team after that will already reflect the discount.
