This is my all time favorite time of year to participate in running events. The holidays are in full swing, and everyone is in a festive spirit. The 2017 Reindeer Romp, held in Wilsonville OR is the perfect family friendly holiday race. This is a 5K Fun Run and Kids Dash. This year participants will receive a Reindeer Romp and Bullwinkle Bash t-shirt, reindeer antlers and a red nose and a $5 game card in their goodie bag. It is sponsored by Wilsonville Parks and Rec, Wilsonville Family Fun Center and Bullwinkles Family Restaurant.
The event will start off with holiday music and cheer. There will be a warm up session at the Family Fun Center beforehand. The Kid’s Dash will start at the Fun Center. On the arrival of the kids return, everyone is invited to join the whole family for a 5K Fun Run/ Walk. The course will be on the sidewalks of Wilsonville and end back at Bullwinkle’s. There will be a festive post-race party with music, food, crafts and fun. There will also be a special appearance made by the BIG guy himself Santa Claus and even Bullwinkle.
Parking is available at the Fun Center, as well as at the Parks and Rec Admin Building. Check in and registration will open at 8am, plan on arriving within plenty of time to find parking, check in and prepare for the race. The Kid’s Dash will promptly start at 8:45 am, and the 5K will be at 9 am. This is a rain or shine event, and the race will not be timed. All participants are asked to stay on the sidewalks and to obey all traffic signals, there will also be route monitors along the course, and the course will be well marked with yellow arrows. Strollers and leased dogs are welcome.
