About the Epilepsy Action Reindeer Stampede

Event Information

  • Complimentary reindeer antlers provided
  • A free mince pie
  • Finisher medal for all runners
  • Drinks at the finish
  • Fantastic scenic route
  • Children’s fun run
  • Carols performed by a local brass band

Unfortunately the course is not suitable for wheelchair users.

Runners' packs

Every runner will receive a pack containing a running number, an information guide and sponsorship form. Complimentary reindeer antlers will be available for collection on the day.


As well as the main 5k Reindeer Stampede, there will also be a Mini-Stampede for children under the age of 8 years old. This will take a route of approximately 400m and will begin at 9.40am, before the main 5k run. Entries for this will be taken on the day for a registration fee of £3 per child.

Just seen this. I don't do any running but would love to do it. Do I need to train or is it a fun run. Thanks.

Hi Sharon

Thank you for getting in touch. We're delighted to hear that you are interested in taking part in the Reindeer Stampede.

The event is a family fun run, but you can also walk or jog if you prefer. The emphasis for most people is certainly on having fun rather than getting a quick time.

We hope to see you on the day.

Best wishes

Is the 5k route one lap or is it the same as the park run course.
