CAPE CANAVERAL -- Lace up your running shoes, and make your way out to the City of Cape Canaveral Leisure Services Department's Reindeer Run 5K on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 8 a.m.

The 18th annual run, which will begin at Cherrie Down Park, will also feature a Space Coast Runners Kids Fun Run at 9 a.m.

Registration for the Reindeer Run 5K is $30 and the Kids Fun Run is free.

"When the race first started out, it was to benefit the United Way," said Andrea Binney, recreation coordinator for the City of Cape Canaveral Leisure Services Department. "It has changed beneficiaries and race directors since first starting."

This year's Reindeer Run 5K proceeds will benefit the Police Athletic League, Ms. Binney added.

Prizes for the 5K will be awarded to the winners in each age division, as well as to the first, second and third overall runners.

Ms. Binney said participants should stick around after the run, as there are a bunch of wonderful door prizes up for grabs.

"We have tickets to Universal Studios, free night stays at local area hotels, tickets to the Brevard Zoo and merchandise from area businesses," she added.

A fun race for all ages, the Reindeer Run 5K is an exciting holiday event to do with family and friends.

"This is a great race, with a lot of history," Ms. Binney said. "It is a very fun event to get you in the holiday spirit, complete with a visit from Santa Claus."

The City of Cape Canaveral Leisure Services Department will host the 18th annual Reindeer Run 5K on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 8 a.m., with a Space Coast Runners Kids Fun Run beginning at 9 a.m. Both will be hosted at Cherrie Down Park.

Registration for the Reindeer Run 5K is $30 and the Kids Fun Run is free.
