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

The Fundraising Events Team

I just wanted to thankyou so much for a fantastic event today. Brilliantly organised and huge fun for all the family. The volunteers and marshals were awesome and really got into the spirit. Many thanks to the choir and brass band also, who kept us very jolly. We love the medals as well. My 15 & 8 year old already want to do it again next year! Hope you are all thawed out and relaxed now!

Thank you so much Lucy, really glad you and your family enjoyed the event!

Just wow! Stampede newbies 2017 but will definitely be back next year. A really well organised race and an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Lovely friendly family vibe. So festive with park decorations, carol singers, a brass band and super supportive and bell jingling marshalls! Not to mention the antlers and mince pie. My girls and I had a wonderful race which was accessible and safe but not without its challenges! Well done everyone involved. Hope you raised lots of funds.
