RNLI Reindeer Runs

At this time of the year there are numerous Santa Dash’s, Turkey Trots and Reindeer Runs. And I for one, love them all, because usually they are great fun, they encourage new runners, and help spread the Christmas Cheer…..hurray! (As well as help with a little excercise during this season of indulgence).

I decided that I’d like to highlight the RNLI Reindeer runs. This is because they do amazing, brave work as well as being nicely organised races. Added to that, is the fact that there are a few of them:

  • 22nd November – Liss Ard (apparently it was good, I missed it)
  • 29th November – Fota House, Cork (great location for a run)
  • 6th December – Marley Park, Dublin 
Also for our UK friends, there’s one this Saturday in Dorset.


There is a 10K and 5K distance at all these events, as well as a “1k saunter”, You get a t-shirt and ‘reindeer antlers’ for the 10k and 5k races. Here’s the prices:
  • Adult 10K – €22
  • Adult 5K – €20
  • 1K Saunter – Free
  • Child Ticket – €10
  • Family Ticket (2 adults, 2 children) – €55

Small bit about RNLI

I had the pleasure of going on-board the LifeBoat down in Castletownbere this summer. This was really interesting and enjoyable. They are some people (both the volunteers and the full time staff) and it was some machine. This picture from the RNLI lifeboat in Cliften, posted yesterday, says a lot about what they do:
