We’ve got spaces available in the 10K and 5K fun runs, and there's a 1K Santa Saunter that’s perfect for the little ones. Why not bring the whole herd and stay to enjoy the other activities Moors Valley has to offer?

 

Please take a moment to read through the event details below before signing up.

 

As part of your Reindeer Run journey, we will support you with a series of emails with training and tips. If you have any questions about this event, please contact your local Reindeer Run team at MoorsValleyReindeer@rnli.org.uk.

PARTICIPANT INFORMATION

Race times

5K race starts at 10am
10K run starts at 10.30am
1K Santa Saunter starts at 11am

Please note, the 10K run will not start until the last 5K runner crosses a set point of the course, so the start may be delayed.

 

Check in

You will need to check in on the day. Please aim to arrive around an hour before your race starts and bring a copy of your confirmation email to the race as proof of ID.

Pre-registration is essential. We cannot accept entries on the day.

 

Race number

Your race number will be given to you when you register on the day of the race. Please remember your safety pins to attach your race number to the front of your top. You will be required to fill in your emergency contact details and medical information on the reverse of the race number.

 

T-shirts and antlers

All participants receive a FREE RNLI Reindeer Run T-shirt (subject to availability). Just select your size when you sign up and collect your T-shirt on the morning of the event when you hand in your ID. Antlers are available on the day for a suggested donation of £2. Make sure you get yours in time to start the race!



What to wear

Even though you’ll have the free T-shirt, it’s important that you bring other layers. You need to keep warm before the event starts, have breathable fabric on during the race, and be able to stay snug afterwards when your core temperature drops. Bring a change of warm, dry clothes for afterwards.

 

If it looks like rain, make sure you also bring a waterproof coat to wear before and after the race. And please wear appropriate footwear, as parts of the courses may be uneven, steep or slippery. Take care when running.

 

Festive fancy dress is encouraged, so why not get into the festive spirit and dress up?

 

Warm up

We’ll host a warm-up at 9.45am for the 5K runners and at 10.15am for the 10K runners. The warm-up will take place by PA system, close to the start line.

 

Routes

There may be parts of the course where the ground is uneven, steep and slippery, so please take care when running and make sure you wear appropriate footwear.

 

For the 5K run, distance markers will be displayed along the route at every 1K point. For the 10K run, there will be distance markers from the halfway stage and at every 1K point thereafter. All runners are to follow the arrows and directions given by marshals.

 

The 1K Santa Saunter is a family-friendly walk. When you register, we will give you a start time but you’re free to do the walk at your leisure. We will give you an activity sheet and you’ll need to follow Rookie’s numbered signs to make your way to the finish line. Running is not permitted on the saunter course at any time.

 

Results

As this is a fun run, times will not be recorded for runners. But a clock will be available for you to record your own time.

 

Prizes

All participants will receive a medal and there will be token prizes for the first woman and first man to cross the finish line in the 10K and 5K runs. There will be also be spot prizes for fancy dress – so why not get into the festive spirit?
