Bring the Whole Family to This Christmas-Themed Running Event

Looking for a fun way to get a running start on your holiday season? Look no further than the 2018 Reindeer Run! Presented by Half-Moon Outfitters, this holiday-themed run is a family-oriented, pet-friendly 5k run/walk through the lower peninsula of downtown Charleston.

This beautiful 5k race route takes you along the beautiful Charleston Battery and brings you right back to where you started to finish the race. Afterward, please join us for the after party in our official Beer Garden or visit one of the many nearby delicious restaurants!

Additionally, this year’s event sees the return of the costume contest. That’s right – dress up in your festive best and enter the contest! Categories include adult individual, child individual, group and dog. Come dressed to win and you could receive a number of cool prizes from local restaurants and retailers!

A well-known event across the greater Charleston area and beyond, the Reindeer Run has grown significantly over the years from only a few hundred participants to record attendance of over 3,500 runners. Throughout the history of the event, the Charitable Society of Charleston (CSC) has donated over $1,000,000 to MUSC Children’s Hospital.

Proceeds from the Reindeer Run are split between the campaign for the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and the Charitable Society of Charleston. 80% of the funds go to MUSC and 20% go to the Charitable Society of Charleston’s endowment. This endowment provides grants and donations to local non-profit organizations which benefit both children and elderly residents of the Lowcountry.
