Santas On The Run

santa fun run

12:02am 24th November 2013

Santas of all ages will be pounding the streets of Poundbury in December.

Weldmar Hospicecare Trust are holding their third Family Santa Fun Run, supported by Wessex FM.

You can walk, jog or run the two mile route which this year will start at Poundbury Garden Centre.

And you get a free Santa Costume.

Matt Smith, event organiser said "This is an event in our fundraising calendar which really does mark the start of Christmas. Everyone being dressed in Santa suits creates a fantastic atmosphere and brings cheering crowds and drivers blowing their horns on route. It really is a lovely sight.

"One of the main aims of this event is to have fun. However, it is also vitally important that we raise as much money as possible to enable us to continue providing our various services throughout the county. It would be great if we could have more families and workplaces registered this year. It really is a fantastic event".

Registration is open now:

£10 for ages 10 and over - to include a 5 piece Santa Suit

£6 for ages 5-9 - to include a 3 piece Santa Suit

FREE - Under 5's - to include a Santa Hat

If you would like to be part of this fantastic event, but do not wish to walk or run, Weldmar are still looking for volunteers to help marshal the route.

To register for the fun event or if you are able to help please contact Weldmar on 01305 261800 or visit www.weld-hospice.org.uk/santarun
