Last year was a record event for us: over 1300 "Santas" registered for the Fun Run with 113 Teams being registered to raise important funds for their own selected charities or good causes.
Once again we invite teams to enter. Remember, teams get to keep all the sponsorship money you raise as a group. Alternatively, come and enjoy yourself and enter as an individual with the option of raising sponsorship money for our Rotary Club's selected local good causes; this year they are Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, Stamford Food Bank, Stamford Mindspace and Anna's Hope.
This is a Fun Run for all ages and abilities and is a thoroughly enjoyable day for participants and spectators alike. As well as serious runners, we welcome joggers, walkers and wheelchair users; we even accept dogs - with their owners of course! Children 12 years of age and under are to be accompanied by an adult.
Entry fees, are the same as last year; £13 for adults who enter from 1 September 2019 to 31 October 2019, and then £14 up to the day of the event. There is a fee of £7 for children 12 years of age and under. (Children 4 and under are free to enter but no suit will be issued. Please do not enter these children's details for the event or you could be charged). The fee includes a Santa Suit, inclusive of hat and beard, which is yours to keep. All entrants will receive a medal on completion of the course, a mince pie and, if old enough, a glass of mulled wine..

We have set up a page on Facebook - Stamford Santa Fun Run by Stamford Burghley Rotary - that keeps you up to date with the latest news and also what we are up to; so if you use Facebook, come and join us, and if you don't do this already, this is a good excuse to start!
For this years event, we welcome for the 13th year the support by Anne Corder in providing the mince pies and mulled wine for the runners as they complete the course; BGL are providing a major contribution for the second year as are many of our community sponsors detailed below. We welcome the contribution in planning and running the event by Stamford Striders; our joint aim is to produce a more professional approach to the Santa Fun Run, whilst retaining all the fun elements. If you would like to support one of the biggest events of the season, please contact us. Your help could make all the difference. The Stamford Santa Run benefits greatly from the input, hard work and encouragement of our supporters to whom we send our grateful thanks. These include:Stop Press
