Buxted Park Reindeer Run raises thousands of pounds for The Fire Fighters Charity

Buxted Park Reindeer Run saw its biggest and muddiest event this year with approximately 400 runners taking part.

The children’s 1k event saw some incredible festive fancy dress with Santas, reindeer, elves and even Elsas crossing the finish line for their glittering medals given out by Uckfield Green watch firefighters.

The 5k recorded its quickest time ever of 21 minutes by Robert Walton and the 10k was equally impressive with Ben Stock coming home in 42 minutes.

The fancy dress theme was fully supported this year with some fantastic outfits, including a Christmas pudding.
