The Rotary Clubs of Marlow have announced that the 11th Santa’s Fun Run will take place on Sunday December 6th, starting at 9.30 am, and entry is now open! They promise it will be bigger, better, and even more fun than ever.
Sir Steve Redgrave will again start the run, and 2500 participants will stream through the streets of Marlow. The run continues to grow year on year, and in 2015 Olympic gold winners Sir Steve and Naomi Riches will be running just as they did last year. Runners will be dressed as Santa Clause, Mummy Clause and Santa’s little helpers, and Marlow High Street will again be a remarkable sea of red on this magic day. Dogs will also be welcome – as will push chairs and wheel chairs. So able bodied or not, young or old, this really is the fun run for everyone.
The run raises serious money for good causes. Participating Santas can raise money for their own personal charities along with Rotary chosen charities.. In 2014 over £30,000 was distributed to mainly local charities and other deserving causes.
The 5 kilometre route takes participants from and then back to Higginson Park, and for all those who complete the course there is a celebratory medal – just to say “Well done”!
The website is LIVE as of September 1st (www.santasfunrun.org) and anyone interested will need to book early to avoid disappointment (Last year Rotary had to close to entries well before the event date). The website also has lots of information about the run, Rotary, the charities we support and the all-important entry and sponsorship forms.
Entry costs are £15 (adults), £10 (12 to 17 years), and £7 (5 to 11 years). Adults receive a Santa Suit, and children a Santa T-shirt.
