This festive event is perfect for the whole family… whether you want to hop, skip, dance or run the route “yule” be sure to have lots of fantastic festive fun. As a gift from us to you this Christmas, everyone who signs up to take part will also receive their very own Santa suit (under-3s are free but do not receive a suit) before they start the run; while you’ll also receive a finishers medal and goody bag once you’ve crossed the finish line.
