IFB Race: Santa’s Showdown

Two men and two women who are wearing race bibs hold trophies outdoors.


Reindeer vs. Elves

Each year, before Christmas, Santa’s reindeer and elves battle it out to see who is faster. This is the kick-off to Christmas at the North Pole and Santa is bringing it to North Carolina! How does this work? Half the entrants will be designated as reindeer and half the entrants will be designated as elves. At the end of the race, the average time of each group (reindeer vs. elves) will be calculated. The group with the lowest average time will be declared the winner!
