SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, Donner and Blitzen!

Looking for a way to dash off those Thanksgiving pounds? Or perhaps just to stay in shape before the New Year's resolution kicks in.

There will be plenty of opportunities to lace up and hit the pavement this holiday season around San Diego — and no, not for shopping purposes. Please don't run inside department stores.
