New Combined Event! 

This year, SJND Athletics is hosting our annual Ray Ratto Sr. Pasta Dinner with our annual Reindeer Run. As you are purchasing your registration for the race, why not also purchase a post-race pasta meal?

SJND has partnered with local restaurant, Cera Una Volta, to create “Take & Make” pasta kits. The pasta kits include home-made marinara sauce, pasta, and biscotti, and bread to soak up your sauce from Semifreddi’s. Each kit feeds 8 so plenty for yourself and your friends or family.

And we're back in person for the annual 5K Reindeer Run! Join us at Crab Cove in Alameda for the race. You can walk, run, jog, or a mixture of the three. Kids also welcomed!

Can't make it in person? We're still offering virtual! See more details below.

We hope to see you on Saturday, December 11 at Crab Cove in Alameda. The event begins at 8:00am and ends at 11:00am.  

Reindeer Run Proceeds go to:

10% of the proceeds from Reindeer Run registrations will be donated to the Alameda Food Bank. For every $1 we donate, the food bank will be able to buy $7 worth of food!
