Marlow Santas Fun Run – K9 Challenge

| |

The organisers of Marlow Santas Fun Run have had many requests from dog owners
regarding participation in the 2020 event. As a result they are issuing the following advice –
aimed at offering a fun and Covid 19 compliant Christmas run or walk for you and your best
friend!

From the Santa Fun Run organisers:


We are suggesting that dog owners use public park areas over the 5 th and 6 th December –
and Higginson Park offers perhaps the ideal venue. So here are a few suggestions:

  1. First – you of course have to enter the Fun Run via www.santasfunrun.org. You
    have to pay – but your dog (or dogs) – all go free!
  2. Once you receive your Santa outfit think about how to dress your dog similarly
  3. The event will take place at a time of your choosing on the 5th & 6 th December, and
    of course you have to run or walk in groups of 6 or less. You choose how far – and
    whether you run or walk. So get together with other dog owners to organise a
    suitable time and meeting place!
  4. We understand photographers will be around for much of each day – to capture
    the sights. You may even become famous!
  5. On the subject of photographs – also take your own. There is a competition and the
    best pet photo will win £250 for your favourite charity
    . And if your photo is chosen
    as the best photo of the overall event a further £500 will be added
  6. Details are on www.santasfunrun.org – and you enter there. Photos should be sent
    to photo@santasfunrun.org and we will enter your photo into the competition.
    (We will of course check that you actually entered the Fun Run!)
  7. Finally – why not raise further money for charity by setting up a Virgin Giving page
    (details again on the website). Last year we raised £50,000 for charity – let’s see if
    we can do it again this year.
