Red Jacket Central School
Start the Christmas season the Saturday after Thanksgiving with a run, walk or stroll with real reindeer!
For runners: This is a USATF-certified 1 mile fun run, and also a family-oriented holiday event. The course is an easy mile from the traffic signal in Shortsville on Route 21 to the traffic signal in the middle of the Village of Manchester. The race will be chip-timed at the finish. The course map can be found here.
For walkers: You will start at the Red Jacket High School and end at the same location as the runners. The walking route is slightly shorter than the running route (total of .7 miles).
Post Walk/Run Activities
Enjoy the post-run/walk festivities at the finish line: Free hot dogs, popcorn, smores, baked goods, cocoa, and coffee, and pictures with Santa.

(Children 5 years old and younger – with registered adult – are free for the walk only and need not register.)
Parking and same-day registration is available at the school. Advance registration is strongly encouraged, thank you!
