Run, Walk, Stroll or Jog a 1 or 5 kilometre course:

We’re back in the city and can’t wait to see you in your festive fancy dress. This year the #GlosSantaFunRun is on Saturday 9th December 2023 outside the old Debenhams Store in Kings Square. Registration from 9.30am for a 10.00 start.

Last year we had over 300 runners and you helped raise over £2,400 for local charities; so let’s see if we can beat that this year! Lets fill Kings Square with Santas; so spread the word. Remember your entry fee is a donation which goes to support local charities.

COVID19 is still out there (I don’t think it’s going anywhere) so if you wish you can choose to do your own virtual fun run at your convenience. Last year the virtual event was such a success and by offering this choice it means that people who for whatever reason would not be able to make the actual day; will still be able to join in.

So, for those that wish to join us in the city, please sign up as normal and for those that wish to do the virtual event, please sign up but select virtual fun run and then choose when and where to do your fun run; all we ask is that you obey the current regulations regarding COVID 19 and respect other people whilst doing the run.

We still have a few of the Santa Snoods for sale at £6 each if you want one to keep you COVID safe during your run. You can collect them from Cass-Stephen’s office in Barnwood or on the day.

Remember you don’t automatically get a medal; you need to order one if you want one. The prices are set lower as some of you wish simply to take part for the fun of it and don’t require a medal. So, you pay slightly less for taking part and pay extra if you wish to have a medal. That way I don’t have to limit the numbers of runners to the numbers of medals I have on order.

Due to the worldwide pandemic Charities have not been able to carry out their normal fund-raising and yet they are expected to help out even more than they were in the past; as such they need our help more than ever. Basically, they need your help to keep going

So we are here to try and raise some much-needed funds to support our nominated charity The Rotary in Gloucester Community Awards who support a raft of local charities every year and we have taken all reasonable precautions to make it safe for us and the public whilst doing so.

All the profits go to the charity, who will in turn help the people of Gloucester get back to some sort of normality.
