28th Annual Reindeer Run

This year marks the 28th annual Reindeer Run. The 2018 Reindeer Run starts at 9:00am on Saturday, December 8th near the corner of East Bay and Queen Street.

Presented by Half-Moon Outfitters, the Reindeer Run is a family-oriented, pet-friendly 5k run/walk through the lower peninsula of downtown Charleston, SC.

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.

Such a fun part of this Run is the costume contest! For more information on the Reindeer Run, check out their site here.
