Reindeer Romp

This 5K fun run and kids' dash offers fitness and fun for the whole family!  The event, which takes place each year in early December, is co-sponsored by Wilsonville Parks and Recreation and Wilsonville Family Fun Center and Bullwinkle's Restaurant.  Participants receive a Reindeer Romp and Bullwinkle Bash t-shirt, reindeer antlers and a red nose in their goodie bag.
The fun starts with holiday music and a warm up session at Family Fun Center. The Kids' Dash will take place at the Fun Center, and when the kids return, they are invited to join the whole family for a 5k Run/Walk on the sidewalks of Wilsonville that ends up back at Bullwinkle's for a festive post-race party. Music, food, crafts, fun and games are on the menu at the party, as well as visits from Santa and Bullwinkle. 

Leashed, well-behaved dogs are allowed to join the family in the 5K race, but are not allowed inside the Family Fun Center.

Strollers are allowed.
