YMCA: Reindeer Ramble


Wear your reindeer antlers, your ugly sweater, your santa suit, your bells and bows, and bring your best holiday cheer. Join us on Saturday, Dec. 8, at Keeneland for the YMCA of Central Kentucky’s thirteenth annual Reindeer Ramble 5K and 10K run/walk, presented by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. Santa and his reindeers will be there, too!

This family-friendly event features a 5K and 10K for individuals or teams. The 5K Santapede team consists of three to 10 participants who must be linked together with a garland or ribbon throughout the 5K race. Top finishers in each category, as well as those Santapede teams that celebrate the holiday spirit most brightly will be recognized post-race.


Each year, the Y provides over $1 million in financial assistance locally, thanks to generous gifts from YMCA members and donors through our Annual Campaign, grants and special events. 100 percent of the race proceeds will provide scholarships specifically for children to attend YMCA summer day camp. In 2018, the Y served 2,000 kids in summer camps.


The 5K and 10K rates are $25 for a child/teen (Ages 8-17), $35 for an adult (Ages 18 and up), $150 for a 5K Santapede team (3-5 people) or $225 for a 5K Santapede team (6-10 people) through Dec. 7. There also will be day of race registration.


The Reindeer Ramble is sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Ford, Lexington Clinic, University of Kentucky Federal Credit Union, UPS, Wildcat Moving, and Bank of the Bluegrass.
