Wausau Reindeer Run set to begin Saturday

WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) -- More than 100 Santas are expected to run or walk along Wausau’s riverfront trail tomorrow searching for reindeer in the first annual 5k Wausau Rotary Reindeer Fun Run. 

A 1k event for children is also taking place. Both races start at 11 a.m.

The Rotary Club of Wausau is organizing the timed event to raise funds for area high school scholarships and youth exchange programs, other community projects and global health initiatives to end polio and provide access to clean drinking water.

Anyone at any skill level is invited to run or walk. Each runner receives a Santa hat, running gloves and a drawstring bag.

Runners can pick up packets and register at the starting line beginning Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at the WOW Family Entertainment Center.

Registration fee for the 5K event is $35; the 1K Fun Run is $10. All proceeds go to Rotary Club of Wausau projects.
