New Balance is also bringing shoes for runners to test out, and will provide sweet treats at the finish.

The holiday-themed run will begin at 9 a.m. Check-in will start at 8:15 a.m., at the Philadelphia Runner shop on Main Street. The race is free to attend with registration, but runners are asked to bring a canned good to donate.

After finishing, runners can enjoy food and drink in Manayunk. Many neighborhood spots – including a smoothie and juice bar – will offer deals to Rudolph Run participants. Look for "Reindeer Stop" signs to know where to go.
