Bellefonte, PA

Over 120 runners participated in the 3rd annual Raider Reindeer 4K held in Bellefonte on a balmy December morning (40 degrees). There was a magical display of holiday characters this morning including Mr and Mrs Claus, a few reindeer and a guy in a cool blue suit! Chris Bahnsen was the overall winner in 14:40 and Gretchen Pifer was the first female in 15:27 (6th overall). The winners received a plush reindeer and reindeer cookie and there were age group winners that won reindeer cookies of their very own. Thank you to all our volunteers, Bellefonte Fire Police, Dave Eggler-our timer and our awesome sponsors! Overall, everyone enjoyed the race and proceeds benefited the Bellefonte Area XC program. We are looking forward to hosting the event again next year! Happy Holidays everyone!
