Sunday December 4th: 2,500 people took part in the ever popular Santa Fun Run, organised by The Rotary Clubs of Marlow. Lovely crisp morning for it, loads of money raised for charity (in excess of £40,000 expected!), and festive fun was had by all.
Naomi Riches led a pre-race warm up and Sir Steve Redgrave gave the official starters orders. The race proceeded up Marlow High Street led by a BMW I8 bedecked as a sleigh (provided by lead sponsor, Sytner BMW of High Wycombe), followed by the stunnign spectacle of 2,500 Santas filling the High Street!
This year the Jam Theatre group entertained spectators mid race in the High Street, and beat the cold with some great team dance routines. The biggest ever spectator attendance was kept fully entertained.
The men’s race was won by Stephen Francis in a time of 18 minutes 56 seconds. George Tipping (19 mins 35) came second, and Ollie Roberts third (19 mins 40).
Hannah Sharp won the female race with a time of 20 minutes 48 seconds, Abbie Jones came second (22 mins 21) and Kate Sophoclides third (23 mins 40).
