We’re less than a month away from Christmas and if you’re planning on celebrating the festive season in any way, shape, or form, there’s a high probability that there’s going to be lots of food involved.
And what better way to rid yourself of the guilt of over-indulgence than by chucking on a Christmas jumper and running to raise some money for charity? This year Reindeer Run will be contributing to the Kilimanjaro Challenge who are setting off on the 31st December and raising funds to build a school in Ethiopia.
The Reindeer Run is making a comeback this Christmas
On the 21st of December, hundreds of people will gather over at Tigne in Sliema for a 5k walk/run/jog/dance full of Christmas cheer and treats, to raise some money for a local charity. Along the Reindeer Run, participants will be encouraged to pause their journey and take on a couple of easy challenges to earn goodies and treats.
From hopping on one leg to completing a push-up, you can choose to forfeit the challenge and let go of your treat, or give it a go and be rewarded.
Participants are encouraged to dress up to bring along the festive vibes
Jumpers, hats, antlers, tinsel, fairy lights… the crazier, the better! Get your team ready and meet the rest in a fully decked-out Pjazza Tigne at 8am on Saturday. At the very end you can also indulge in a nice cup of hot chocolate.
There will be music, entertainment and treats waiting for you when you get back to Tigne. And you can take advantage of the rest of the day and sneak in some last-minute Christmas shopping.
All participants will be given a shiny reindeer medal at the end of the race as a memento of the day.
You can get your tickets online now ahead of the big day
There are great deals on offer, from kids and groups, to teens and senior citizens and even families. You can also purchase tickets on the day from the start, but these will be subject to availability so you’d be safer to plan ahead to avoid disappointment!
So whether you want to make it a family event with your kiddos, a fun group activity with your friends, or even a work team-building kind of thing – it’s bound to be a fun time.
And we won’t judge you if you stay on for an indulgent Christmas lunch after the run.
