Starts Saturday December 12th, 2020

Alameda, CA

Official Website

Description

Join us for the 2020 Virtual Reindeer Run presented by Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School! 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fourth Annual Reindeer Run in-person event has been changed to a virtual event that will run from Saturday, December 12, 2020 through Sunday, December 20, 2020. Instead of gathering at Crab Cove in Alameda for one large event, we ask you to join us wherever you may be for the 2020 Virtual SJND Reindeer Run 3-Mile Race.


A virtual race means that you can run or walk anywhere you choose! You can complete your run any day or time that is convenient for you between December 12th and December 20th. Local residents may wish to follow the Crab Cove course mapped out on the scenic shores of Crab Cove in Alameda overlooking the San Francisco Bay or you are welcome to complete the race anywhere that works best for you:  your neighborhood, your local park, or even your treadmill - it’s up to you!


We are grateful for your support and understanding during this unprecedented time, and we hope you will register for the Virtual SJND Reindeer Run.

Your neighborhood, your local park, or even your treadmill
