#GetYourAntlersOn and join the Reindeer Run to help us beat blood cancer!

Can you name all of Santa’s 9 Reindeer?

Here are 9 reasons to take part in the Reindeer Run!

1)#GetYourAntlersOn Have you ever taken part in a 5k or 10k wearing antlers? Now is your chance. You can dash your way through the beautiful surroundings of Holyrood Park!

2)Christmas jumpers! Do you need another excuse to wear your chintzy Christmas jumper? Dig out your sparkly, jumpers that your auntie knitted for you and wear them with pride! The more sparkly, too big, festive, colourful, the better!

3)#GrowYourHerd Where would Santa be without his herd of trusty reindeer. Get your friends, family, classmates, workmates and four legged friends to join the Bloodwise team and beat blood cancer.

4)Let It Snow! Edinburgh always looks pretty but there is something magical about Edinburgh with a dusting of snow, especially when you are prancing through Holyrood Park, with views right across Edinburgh!

5)Kids 1k dash! The Reindeer Run is for everyone, therefore, we have a mini 1k dash for the little ones to take part in too!

6)Brrrring It On! We know it’s cold and dark and there’s festive treats all around but get those trainers laced up, get your jumper on and let’s do this! Don’t worry we’ll get you all warmed up and have those festive tunes pumping to get you going before the race!

7)Hot chocolate, mince pies and mulled wine! After you have dashed along the route, why not treat yourself to a luxury hot chocolate or let us treat you to a mince pie or mulled wine, and festive atmosphere.

8)The Bloodwise medal! You have trained hard in the cold weather, and joined your fellow Reindeer Runners, now you will have your very own shiny Bloodwise medal! They look fantastic with antlers!

9)Beating Blood Cancer! Most importantly you will be helping to beat blood cancer.

Blood cancer is the 3rd bigest cancer killer and the fifth most common cancer. All the money raised will fund life-saving research and vital support for people affected by leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.
