Proceeds From Hartford's Reindeer Run Go To United Way

The Downtown Hartford Reindeer Run is Saturday, November 11 at 2:15 p.m.

It’s a one-mile fun run, or you can walk.

Hartford’s Park and Rec Director Randy Wojtasiak told WTKM News it's for a great cause.


"All of the funds raised go to the United Way of Washington County. This run is unique, because it takes place right before the Hartford Christmas Parade in downtown Hartford. The parade begins at 3:00, so all of the runners will have a crowd of people that are finding their spots and cheering them on as they run by. It will be fun, and it's for all ages. We're running this with the Hartford Area Chamber of Commerce. Hartford Community Service Inc. stepped up with a major donation, and we appreciate it."                                        

The starting line is located at Union Street and Main Street in the city of Hartford. The route will take you down Main Street and the finish line is at the Veteran’s Memorial Aquatic Center.

You can sign up at the Hartford Rec Office, and registrations will be accepted the day of the event on November 11.
