The villages of Nether Heyford and Flore are proud to host their 5th annual Santa Run. This is your opportunity to join our fun run and raise money for charity. No previous running experience is required. All we ask is that you complete the event dressed as Santa and cross the finish line in full costume. Other festive costumes will be acceptable although we can only offer the prize money to fully dressed Santas.
If you’ve never done a Santa run before this is a great one to do. Not only is it great fun chasing a Christmas pudding over 5 miles around the beautiful village of Nether Heyford, it’s all in aid of a great cause too with lots of money going to Meningitis Now. The cakes and refreshments in the village hall after the race are delicious and all proceeds go to charity, win win!
The race starts on the village green with a lap of the field before heading out onto the roads around the village and surrounding area, a lovely route with little traffic but marshals on all crossings and corners so it’s safe. Quite an undulating course with a few inclines thrown in but nothing too harsh.
Back to the village green and another lap of the field before finishing and grabbing your festive themed medal, water and banana. There’s also a kid’s 1 mile and 0.5 mile race before the main event, so there’s something for everyone and it’s great to see so many kids involved and running!
