The Newbury Santa Fun Run is back for 2021! Become Santa for the morning and enjoy a scenic fun run through the historic streets of Newbury. The festive event starts in the Market Place and there are two routes to choose from. The 1km route, suitable for children and the less energetic, goes around Victoria Park and returns to the Market Place. The 5km route continues from Victoria Park, through Parkway, to Speen, and returns via Northcroft to finish back in the Market Place.
Organised by Newbury Rotary Club volunteers and assisted and sponsored by Visit Newbury, this fantastic event raises money for some very worthy local causes. Entry fees, after payment of costs (which are kept to an absolute minimum), will be donated to Mencap West Berkshire, the West Berkshire Therapy Centre, West Berkshire Young Carers, and other Rotary Club supported charities. Runners are invited to raise money for their own good causes using this event.
All runners will receive a Santa Suit (available in various sizes and styles!). Those that complete the run will also receive an engraved medal.
Both routes are fully marshalled and directed by our volunteers so our Santas can concentrate on the challenge rather than which way to go! In previous years, more than 100 runners have enjoyed themselves on the day, given pleasure to supporters and bystanders, and have had the satisfaction that they have raised money for good causes.
Registration before the event is required. Full details and conditions can be found on the Newbury Rotary Club website.
