6th Reindeer Run 5K Slated

BERLIN- The 6th Annual Reindeer Run 5K, sponsored by Live Long Fitness, is set to return on December 7 with an early morning start time through downtown Berlin.
The annual race, which has become a fixture on the local holiday schedule since its inception five years ago, starts and finishes at the Atlantic Hotel with the course winding its way through the heart of the downtown area. The course heads down Main Street around the Worcester Prep campus and the Northern Worcester County Athletic Complex before finishing back in front of the hotel on Main Street.
With the town decorated, the event is a perfect kick-off to the holiday season. The event is very family-friendly with food, drinks, a bake sale, carriage rides beginning at 11 a.m. and even Santa. Fundraising has been set up for Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services. The 5K start time is 9 a.m. with a one-mile fun run set to start at 10 a.m.
Last year’s race was the largest ever with 322 competitors. For the second year in a row, Berlin’s own Dave Rovansek was the top overall finishers, while Lindsay Buckman was the top female finishers for the second year in a row. The Top 10 finishers included Rovansek, Steve Wheeler, Blake Hundley, Christopher Stanley, Brian Stoehr, Ben Schofield, Rick Hundley, Pete Mohammadioun, Jason Cole and Buckman.
