Santas on the Run Goes Freestyle

Santas on the Run Goes Freestyle

The most tree-mendous 2k is back for 2021, but it’s not all about Santa… this year it’s going freestyle at an amazing new location – the beautiful Ashton Court Estate in Bristol (yes we’re going off road!).

To reduce the impact on the environment of single use Santa suits, this year we’re asking you to create your own costume. So, dig out the tinsel, find your furry antlers, recycle your Santa suit and spread festive cheer in your Christmas gear.

There will be surprises along the way keep the whole family entertained as you go off-road! Be prepared to get muddy (think wellies and walking boots instead of your finest running trainers), it adds to the fun! You’ll be rewarded at the finish with our special 30th anniversary medal and festive treat!
