Grab your antlers. Lace up those hooves. Be a lifesaver.

Every time an RNLI crew in Scotland launches, they are determined to save every one. But they can’t do that without you.

The Reindeer Run is a fun, festive way to get active and be a lifesaver because you’ll be raising the vital funds that power RNLI crews – and this year it’s easier than ever to get involved.

Why not team up with family and friends for our virtual Reindeer Run, dress up and run around your neighbourhood or hit the treadmill in front of the TV watching your favourite Christmas movie?

Be inspired knowing that no matter where, no matter how far, every step will help lifeboat volunteers on the west coast of Scotland as they strive to save every one.
