Santa Fun Run

Thursday, 2nd November 2017

If you fancy doing something festive whilst keeping fit and having fun, then sign up to take part in Pendle Leisure Trust’s Santa Fun Run.

People of all ages are being invited to don a Santa suit and run round Seedhill Athletics Track and Victoria Park in Nelson.

The 5km event will take place on Sunday, December, 17th. Adults will set off at 9am and there will be a separate track-based 1km race for children, setting off at 9.40am.

Manager of Seedhill Athletics and Fitness Centre, John Rawcliffe, said: “I can’t wait to see all the Santas in one place. It will be a great event and will bring the local community together.

“The route is exceptionally straightforward to cater for all fitness levels, with the emphasis definitely on the word fun. The route is twice around the running track, then into Victoria Park, round the park and back to Seedhill to finish with two more laps of the track. It isn’t a race, so people can do it at their leisure.

”Individuals, groups, work colleagues, basically anyone and everyone can take part and do it any way they want - hop, skip, jump or run! It should be quite a sight to behold as hopefully scores of Santas set off around the track at 9am.”

Entry is £5 per adult, which includes a Santa suit, and £2 each for children.

Anyone wanting to take part can enter by emailing john.rawcliffe@pendleleisuretrust.co.uk or calling 01282 661616.
