Ocala Reindeer Run going online after Christmas Parade cancellation

The 2020 Ocala Reindeer Run will host its 43rd annual installment online after the Ocala Christmas Parade was canceled earlier this year.

All those interested in participating in the virtual race may register online before Thursday, Dec. 31 by visiting the Ocala Reindeer Run website.

After the Ocala Christmas Parade was cancelled in late November, race organizers decided to change to the virtual race.

The cancellation was part of a slate of events that were postponed or cancelled on account of the Covid-19 pandemic. In October, Light Up Ocala was also canceled by the Ocala City Council.

The first 300 registrants will receive a custom finisher’s medal, and the first 400 will receive a race shirt and a bag of goodies.

Money raised at the event benefits the local Boys and Girls Club of Marion County.

For more information, details, or to register for the run, visit the Ocala Reindeer Run website.
