Grab your antlers. Lace up those hooves. Be a lifesaver.

Every time an RNLI crew launches, they are determined to save every one. But they can’t do that without you. The Reindeer Run is a fun, festive way to get active and be a lifesaver. Because you’ll be raising the vital funds that power our people - and this year it’s easier than ever to get involved.

Run at an organised event or create your own run.

For the first time ever, this year’s Reindeer Run will be in-person and virtual. You can sign up for a fun-packed organised event and run 1km, 5km or 10km with a herd of fellow Reindeer Runners.

Alternatively, you can create your own run. Why not team up with family and friends, dress up and run around your neighbourhood or hit the treadmill in front of the TV watching your favourite Christmas movie?

Be inspired knowing that no matter where, no matter how far, every step will help lifeboat volunteers as they strive to save every one.

Join our lifesaving stampede.

Every penny or cent you raise makes a difference. It helps us recruit and train volunteers. It could fund the kit they need to protect themselves. It helps ensure a lifeboat is ready when the call comes. It enables our safety advice to reach as many people as possible, so they can stay safe by the water.

This year, help make Reindeer Run bigger than ever and bring us closer to saving every one we can.
