Dust off your antlers for the annual Reindeer Run in Otterton

It’s nearly time for Otterton’s festive Reindeer Run, so dust off your antlers and get ready for some festive fun.

The event will take place on Saturday, December 7 and offers both a 3km fun run and a 10km multi terrain run – each through the stunning Otter Valley.

Each run will start at 10am at St Michael ‘s Church, Otterton.

The event, which usually attracts around 350 runners, many in fancy dress, raises money for Otterton Primary School and is supported by several local businesses.

Last year, the popular Reindeer Run adopted a new course for its 10k route that took in a stretch of the coastline – to the delight of hundreds of runners who enjoyed fantastic views over Ladram Bay.

The new route was well-received and the run raised around £3,000 for school funds. It is hoped this year’s run will be just as successful.

For more information find the event on Facebook (Otterton Reindeer Run) or visit www.active.com and search for Reindeer Run to book your place in the run (£13 for the 10k route and £5 for the 3km) and save queuing on the day.

Registration for the event is available on the day in the church and opens at 8.30am closing at 9.30am. Those who take part in the 10k event are treated to mulled wine afterwards and will receive a commemorative mug, while those who tackle the 3k will earn themselves some reindeer antlers.
