RNLI Clacton Reindeer Run 2023.

Whether you're a seasoned runner or looking to complete your first race, there's a distance for everyone. Choose from our 10k or 5k and along our beautiful coastal route, you’ll be supported by our wonderful team of RNLI volunteer marshals, all cheering you on to the finish.

All successful participants will receive a pair of antlers and a medal.

The 2023 Reindeer Run builds on the success of the event first held in 2022, that saw over 100 keen runners take part, and in the process helped to raise over £9,000 for the lifeboat station.

Lifeboat Press Officer, Mark Walsham said 'Last year had a fantastic community feel on the day, and despite the rain, everyone had a safe and fun race and helped raise vital funds for our lifesaving work. If you know anyone who might like to join our event this year, please search on Facebook for ‘Clacton Reindeer Run’ where you can find details of how to sign up!'.

Join us on Sunday 19 November 2023 from 9.30am and help save lives at sea.
