Christmas Olympics – Day 12 – Marathon Cookies

Posted by Santa Claus on December 10th, 2012

Did you know a marathon race is 26.2 miles long?

The North Pole reindeer ran a marathon today.  It was a very exciting race.  And it was a very long race.

The marathon started at the North Pole.  The race route was marked with candy canes and fairy lights.  It was a big loop of exactly 26.2 miles.  Or it should have been!

The elves had marked the course. But Clumsy the Elf was in charge of the map. Oh dear!  His map reading skills were not good.

The candy canes and fairy lights did not follow a big loop. The race route was more like a big Christmas tree shape – and at least 36 miles long!

The reindeer kept going and going and going.  They were getting very tired.  They were getting very hungry!  They thought they would never make it to the finish line.

They had all slowed down to a very slow jog.  But then they sniffed something in the air.

It was the smell of Mrs Claus’ cookies.  They could smell a yummy carrot and raisin cookie smell.

The jog got faster and faster and faster.

All of the reindeer started to sprint for the finish. It was a photo finish on the line!

And the winner was….

A tie!  It was decided that all of the reindeer were winners. They shared a huge plate of carrot and raisin cookies as their prize.

Merry Christmas!

    Wow…Christmas reindeer Olympics!Usually human Olympics in summer and winter.I think you were right , all of the reindeer deserve a treat , if one got the treat and the others did not , the other reindeer would be very unhappy!In my pick don not pick Clumsy the elf again.A reindeer should always have their winning turn,if you do not pick Clumsy next time , a reindeer will win!His name is his personality!I think you should put him in Reading map Elf class!
