History of the Stamford Santa Fun Run
The origins of the Stamford Santa Fun Run date back to 2008 when only a handful of runners enjoyed the event in the grounds of Burghley Park. Over the years the number of entrants has increased significantly, and in recent years, the numbers have grown to 1,500 entrants. In 2021 it was a sell-out before the start of the event.
The SSFR is an annual “must-do” family event attracting people of all ages and fitness levels – it provides a graceful lead-up to the festive season. The SSFR has become the largest Santa run for miles around - as well as a large contingent of participants from Stamford people come over from Peterborough, Rutland, Bourne, Grantham, Market Deeping and further afield.
The Stamford Striders is looking forward to hosting the 15th SSFR on Sunday 4th December 2022 in the grounds of Burghley Park.
