YMCA Reindeer Ramble

Saturday December 12th, 2020

Lexington, KY

Official Website


For the 15th year, the Reindeer Ramble will provide a great community-building atmosphere that brings people together from all walks of life.  This event is a strong source of the YMCA's fundraising effort that helps to provide assistance to children and families through our financial assistance program.  Participants who register for the Reindeer Ramble should feel proud to know that their registration is helping to fund our Annual Campaign efforts that impact thousands of lives in our community!

Through the generosity of donors, our financial assistance program offers families a way to apply for assistance on a sliding fee scale that’s designed to fit each individual's financial situation. Your support makes this possible. No one is turned away due to the inability to pay.  Our services are available to everyone and proceeds from this event will help provide scholarships for children and families to attend YMCA programs and memberships. 

We encourage you to wear your favorite holiday sweater, Santa suit or “holiday festive” attire and get into the spirit of this holiday fun run/walk - GET CREATIVE! You may register as an individual runner/walker or with a group as a team. Team of 5 or more will receive a discounted registration fee.  Teams can consist of adult and child members. We will recognize the top finishers in each category, as well as those race teams that celebrated the holiday spirit most brightly.

All participants will receive a commemorative Reindeer Ramble shirt with registration.  However, due to inventory selection, the sooner you register, the greater chance you'll be able to get your preferred size.  If your preferred size is no longer available, you'll be able to either select a different size in stock or select a LATE shirt of your preferred size.  Any LATE shirt will be ordered after the race and will not be available at the time of the event.  Once the LATE shirts arrive, participants will receive notification that they are available for pickup at the High Street YMCA (after race day).

Race Route
CLICK HERE for this year's 5K race route.
CLICK HERE for this year's 10K course. The 10K course will be running the 5K route twice to accumulate the 10K distance.  The 5K participants will need to stay to the right side of the finish line upon completion in order to have a maximized running lane for 10K participants as they begin their second lap of the course.

Awards for the top three male and female finishers in each race will be presented as soon as possible after the race. We will also award the top three male and female finishers in each age group will also be presented.  Lastly, awards will be presented to the top 3 overall teams in the 5K race (no 10K team award).  Team awards will be determined by calculating the fastest 5 times on each race team.  The 3 fastest team times will be the winners. 
5K Age Groups: 10 & under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, .30-34 ... 70-74, 75-79, 80 & over.
