Come and take part in Gloucesters very own Santa Fun Run and help a very worthwhile charity.
Next Years Glos Santa Fun Run date is Saturday 10th December 2022. Don’t forget to put it in your diary
Update 11.12.2021 After the Race
Thank you to everyone who took part today. There were over 300 of us Santa’s running round the city centre. It was a great atmosphere and you help raise some much need funds for the James Hopkins Trust when they need it most; so a huge thank you to you all. Ill try and get some photos on this web site in the next few days. Next year lets see if we can get more people involved so please out the Saturday 10th December 2022 in your diary. Thanks again and hopefully we’ll see you next year.
Update 10.12.2021 Day before the race
Don’t forget that we have plenty of stock in for those of you that would like to buy some. Suits (includes a hat) £6, Hats £2, Snoods £6. A reminder that if you want a medal they will cost you extra £3.
Due to the bulky nature of some of these items and the fact we are trying to save money so all the profits can be given to the James Hopkins Trust, We wont be posting the stock out.
Instead it can either be collected on the day or even better would be beforehand from our offices Cass-Stephens insurances Ltd, Windsor House, Barnett Way, Barnwood, Glos GL4 3RT. Please email me on Matt@cass-stephens.co.uk to let me know when you would like to come so I can make sure that I have the stock in the office.
Thanks in advance and don’t forget to spread the word. #GlosSantaFunRun
Great News – The stock has turned up. So we have plenty of medals now should you want one (DON’T FORGET THAT THIS YEAR, YOU HAVE TO ORDER AND PAY FOR A MEDAL SHOULD YOU WANT ONE) You don’t get one just for taking part!
We also have plenty of Santa Suits, Santa Hats and Santa Snoods if you want to be extra safe. You’ll have to log on and buy the stock online or you can buy it on the day (if we don’t sell out that is)
Just a reminder that the fun run is in the CITY CENTRE this year like back in 2019 (Not round the park)
Please continue to spread the word. Lets get as many Santa’s as we can into the city this year!!
See you there
We’re back in the city and can’t wait to see you in your festive fancy dress. This year it’s on Saturday 11th December 2021 outside the Guildhall. Registration from 9.30am for a 10.00 start.
Last year you helped raise over £1,800 for local charities; so let’s see if we can beat that this year!
Run, Walk, Stroll or Jog a 5-kilometre course:
This year the #GlosSantaFunRun is on Saturday 11th December 2021 in the city. Unfortunately, COVID19 is still out there so we’re planning on doing something different this year and giving you the choice to either come into the city and do the fun run like normal; or you can choose to do your own virtual fun run at your convenience. Last year the virtual event was such a success and by offering this choice it means that people who for whatever reason would not be able to make the actual day; will still be able to join in.
So, for those that wish to join us in the city, please sign up as normal and for those that wish to do the virtual event, please sign up but select virtual fun run and then choose when and where to do your fun run; all we ask is that you obey the current regulations regarding COVID 19 and respect other people whilst doing the run.
This year we have the Santa Snoods for sale at £6 each (currently on back order) if you want one to keep you COVID safe during your run. You can collect them from Cass-Stephen’s office in Barnwood or on the day.
This year due to COVID I’ve had a job to order any stock so I’m limited at the moment on medals and as some of you wish simply to take part for the fun of it and don’t require a medal, I’ve set the prices accordingly. So, you pay slightly less for taking part and pay extra if you wish to have a medal. That way I don’t have to limit numbers of runners but can just restrict the numbers on the medals.
During this worldwide pandemic Charities have not been able to carry out their normal fund-raising and yet they are expected to help out even more than they were in the past; as such they need our help more than ever. Basically, they need your help to keep going
So we are here to try and raise some much-needed funds to support our nominated charities The James Hopkins Trust and have taken all reasonable precautions to make it safe for us and the public whilst doing so.
All the profits go to the charity so please help us to help these charities, who will in turn help the people of Gloucester get back to some sort of normality
A FUN DAY FOR ALL –
Please DRESS UP AS SANTA OR AN ELF to make it more fun:
So we look forward to you joining us by running in your full Santa Set up including your Santa Snood on Saturday 11th December 2021 in the City or during that week if you’re doing the virtual fun run and posting your photos to show that you’ve done it on our Social Media. Please use #GlosSantaFunRun
So put on a Santa Hat and Snood or a full Santa Outfit and run, walk or be pushed round a 1k or 5k.
This event is organised by the Rotary Club of Gloucester and sponsored and supported by Gloucester BID, Nettl and Cass-Stephens Insurances Ltd.
