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

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 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 – and you enter there. Photos should be sent
    to 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.
