The Friday Night Live Reindeer Run is a 5k Fun Run beginning at Mitchell Park in San Luis Obispo, taking runners along the Railroad Trail to Orcutt Road, and returning to Mitchell Park via Broad and Santa Barbara Streets. Participants are encouraged to wear their favorite holiday attire, and enjoy a pancake breakfast with Santa following the run. All proceeds from the Reindeer Run benefit Friday Night Live (FNL) youth programs throughout San Luis Obispo. FNL is a school-based youth development program focused on engaging youth as active leaders in their communities to reduce youth substance use and support mental wellness.
