Pittsboro, NC - On Saturday, December 14, 2013, community members, partners and volunteers with the Active Chatham Coalition will join together for the Ninth Annual 5K Reindeer Run/Walk plus the 1-mile Rudolph’s Family Fun Run in Pittsboro, NC. The race will start promptly at 8:00 a.m. at the Central Carolina Community College campus, where runners and walkers will begin the 3.1 mile USATF certified 5K course on the T.H.A.N.K.S. trail, run through scenic downtown Pittsboro and finish at the community college.

The Rudolph’s Family Fun Run is free for children age 12 and under and we invite the entire family to join in on this fun, 1-mile physical activity challenge. The 1-mile Rudolph’s Family Fun Run will start at 9:00am. Santa will be making a special visit from the North Pole to visit with children from 7:00am to 8:00am.

Children and families who wish to participate should all meet Rudolph in front of Central Carolina Community College Building 2 at 9:00am. All children and families are welcome; participation in the Reindeer Run/Walk is not required.

Together everyone will complete a quick warm-up. Rudolph will then lead children and families around a fun .75 mile course on the CCCC THANKS trail. Along the way, participants will stop and complete three Reindeer Challenges! All kids finishing the fun run will receive a medal.
