5K Reindeer Race and 1-mile Santa Shuffle

The JL 5K Reindeer Race & 1-mile Santa Shuffle will be held on Saturday, December 8, 2012.  This race starts at the St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach under another beautiful balloon archway! All runners and walkers are treated to a down-and-back lap along the picturesque and flat loop of one of Florida’s most amazing state parks.

All kids 12 and under receive a custom reindeer medal upon completion of the 5K and the top three finishers in numerous age groups receive handmade reindeer ornament medals. A special treat is the 1-mile “Shuffle” out and back along the edge of the state park. Little racers receive a “squishy Santa” at the completion of this 1-mile.

The 5K costs $20 before November 23 and $25 after that date, while the 1 mile costs $10 before November 23 and $15 after that date. There is no additional fee to enter the St. Andrews State Park for race participants and their families on race day.

To insure fast and accurate results, this race includes chip-timing by Warrior Timing.

The first 300 paid participants receive a collectible race t-shirt.
