  • Location: Festival Place Queen Anne’s Square (outside Iceland)

Calling all reindeers to the North Pole!

Join Rudolph and his friends just before Christmas to walk, jog, run, skip, or even dance our brand-new 3K Reindeer Run, whilst raising vital funds for St. Michael’s Hospice. There will be lots of fun activities such as face painting and yummy refreshments to enjoy when you cross the finish line

This festive fun run will be starting at Festival Place and heading out to Eastrop Park before looping back to the finish line. You may choose to take part to remember a loved one, spend time with friends and family, or simply to have some festive fun. Whatever your reason, we would love to see you there!

Your entry fee includes: the cost of staging the event, reindeer antlers, an exclusive Reindeer Run medal, a fully marshalled route, and refreshments.

The Reindeer Run is suitable for all ages. Please note, children (under the age of 16) MUST be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over and children under the age of 3 go free!

Please be aware that this route does not have chip timing.

Sponsorship information

This year it will cost over £5.5 million to operate the Hospice and provide our services to the local community, with less than 20% funding from the North Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group. We kindly ask all participants to try and collect a small amount of sponsorship to help us continue to provide our care for patients facing life limiting illness in the community. Here is how your contributions will help:

  • £5.60 is the cost of printing a special memory book for children who have lost someone at the Hospice.
  • £15 is the average cost of providing 3 meals, drinks, and snacks to a patient per day
  • £20 is the cost of 1 nurse for 1 hour
