Registrations for the 3rd Annual Santa Run are now open with two ways to join this year.
The event, hosted by Rotary Clubs in Northampton, sees hundreds of people dress up as Santa to complete 2.5 or 5 kilometres in aid of local charities.
Held over 9 days from Saturday 4 December to Sunday 12 the virtual event gives participants the opportunity to complete a distance of their choice during their own time whilst the main event, taking place on Sunday 12 December at The Racecourse, will see hundreds of Santa's congregate for a festive race. With an aim to walk or run a joint target of 6,833 kilometres, which is the distance Santa travels around Europe to deliver his presents, participants are encouraged to join the Strava group which is sent out after registration to log their distance during the event.
Registration and payment can be completed via the sign up page with adults paying £12, £7 for children and £32 for a Family Concession for 2 adults and 2 children, which all come with Santa suits and medals so you can feel like a champion after.
Once you have entered select Northampton Saints Foundation as your chosen charity here and share your sponsorship page with family and friends.
The money you raise will make a difference to the lives of young people through our Education and Social inclusion programmes. 2020/21 proved the most challenging year the Foundation has faced, due to the covid-19 pandemic, which has seen referrals to our programmes increase and now, more than ever, we need your support so we can continue to support young people.
