Reindeer Run & Jingle Bell Jog
Downtown Baton Rouge will be the place to be on Friday night, December 1st! There will be 2 races and the Festival of Lights featuring Santa Claus, live music, fireworks, free outdoor ice skating and much more. Bring your family out for the run and enjoy the holiday fun!
In keeping with the holiday spirit, we are partnering with the U.S. Marines' Toys for Tots program. Runners and spectators are encouraged to bring a NEW, unwrapped toy to donate to the race site. Please, no weapon toys. All toys collected will benefit children in the Baton Rouge area.

Stay up-to-date with race information by following Forum 35's Facebook Page! You never know when our mascot, Rudy the Reindeer, will want to celebrate early by giving away promotional codes.
