Santa Fun Run… It’s for a Really Great Claus!

Christmas has come early for families wanting to give back and get active, as Primrose Hospice launches their first ever Santa Fun Run!

Primrose’s Santa Fun Run will kick off the Christmas season as hundreds of Santa’s take part in a 5km Santa Fun Run or a 1km Santa Dash just for the children at Arrow Valley Lake, opposite the Visitors Centre on Sunday 16th December 2018.

Registration begins at 10am with a warm up starting at 10:15am, followed by the start of the 1km Santa Dash. It costs £12 for adults to enter, £4 for children, and the under 2’s go free to run, walk or jog the routes.

All adults will receive their very own Santa suit to wear throughout the event and all children (and dogs!) are fully encouraged to don their favourite Christmas fancy dress outfits.  Everyone who completes either of the fun runs will receive a special medal.

There will be lots of festive stalls at the Mini Christmas Market to browse, and hot food and drinks will also be available to buy throughout the event.

Running club Redditch Stars are kindly supporting Primrose this year with the organization of the event. Mark Churchill, Chairman of running club Redditch Stars said: “As a club we decided that we wanted to give back something to the community and those less fortunate than ourselves so we have a yearly charity that we support voted for by the members. We’re hopeful that the day will be enjoyed by all the family and maybe give people a chance to see that running clubs aren’t just for Mo Farah wannabes but for everyone.”
