With an abundance of snow, elves, reindeer, Santas and other colourful characters, Christmas Eve morning at Fitness Corner in Port Elgin looked a lot like a scene from St Nick's workshop at the North Pole.

Approximately 75 people gathered, dressed in their finest Christmas attire, for the 14th annual Reindeer Romp, co-hosted by Fitness Corner and the Saugeen Track and Field Club. All told, the event raised $1,100 for Bruce Shoreline, the local branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association Grey Bruce.

Fitness Corner owner Holly Vanderzwet put participants through a warm up routine before they took to the streets of Port Elgin to walk, jog or run, turning heads of passersby along the 2, 5 or 10 kilometre course.

Santas

What could be better than a visit from Santa? A visit from three Santas, of course! Southampton's Ana Dennier (centre) with Kristine Poirier (left) and Don Bourne of Toronto were ready to take to the streets of Port Elgin for the 14th annual Reindeer Romp.
