Dust off your antlers, it’s nearly time for Otterton’s famous Reindeer Run, which will take place on Saturday, December 1 in Otterton.

The event consists of a 3km fun run and a 10km multi-terrain run through the stunning Otter Valley; both runs start at 10am at St Michael’s Church Otterton.

The event, which usually attracts around 400 runners, many in fancy dress, raises money for Otterton Primary School and is supported by several local businesses. Find us on Facebook (Otterton Reindeer Run) or visit and search for Reindeer Run to book your place in the run (£13 for the 10k route and £5 for the 3km) and save queuing on the day. Registration for the event is available on the day in the church and opens at 8.30am, closing at 9.30am. Those who take part in the 10k event are treated to mulled wine afterwards and will receive a commemorative mug, while those who tackle the 3k will earn themselves some reindeer antlers.
