The Reindeer Fun Run also featured the Kid’s Egg Nog Jog, a half mile run, and the Chick-Fil-A costume contest, and an appearance by the local train part way through the race. As runners crossed the finish line they were greeted with snow, bottles of water and after race festivities, which included a Chick-Fil-A Kids Zone and candy cane shaped bagels from Panera. The predicted rain held off for the majority of the race. For more information about the Reindeer Fun Run visit the official website.
