The Twelfth Stamford Santa Fun Run, organised by Rotary Club of Stamford Burghley Trust Fund which is a registered charity 1107053, will be held on Sunday 9 December 2018 commencing at 11:30 a.m. The venue will be in Burghley Park as in previous years.
Last year, over 850 "Santas" registered for the event. On the day, despite a snow covered Burghley Park, over 500 runners took part in the Run. Seventy five teams took part, raising important funds for their own selected charities or good causes.
Once again we invite teams to enter. Remember, you 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 selected local good causes; this year they are
Phoebe Research, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, and Mind for Wendy the mental health charity.
This is an event 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 £13 for adults who enter before 31 October 2018, 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 their details for the event or you could be charged). The fee includes a free 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..
