With the festive season fast approaching a little light exercise to offset that extra turkey and Christmas pudding must be a great idea.

So, with Santa’s and his Elves coming to town, he’s inviting you and all the family to join him for Northampton’s first, not for profit, Charity Santa Fun Run.

Ideal for both experienced and not so experienced runners from 5 years up, the event will be held at Northampton Racecourse on Sunday 1 st December, starting at 11:00am.

Covering optional 2.5k or 5k distances around the Northampton Racecourse, this flat and open course is ideal for a Sunday morning run in the fresh air.

To get us all in the festive spirit and included in the entry fee, each runner will be given their very own Santa Suit and Hat. Every runner who finishes their distance will also receive a commemorative medal to take home.

What is the Rotary Club of Nene Valley?
We are a group of like minded, local, Northampton people looking to make a difference. We fundraise and make “hands on” contributions to local and international charities. We offer fellowship, support and social activities to our members and their fam. We are part of the
worldwide Rotary family. Over the last 10 years we have raised over £250,000 for local and international good causes, over 100,000 hours on hands on participation in the local community.
Organised by the four Rotary Clubs in Northampton, and with the support of the University of Northampton and Go Beyond Sport this not for profit, family event looks to raise funds to support some vital local charities including Cynthia Spencer Respite Care, Alzheimer’s, The Hope Centre and Lowdown Charities.

To raise funds for these charities each participant is asked to obtain sponsorship from relatives, friends & colleagues etc., as this will be the only source for charitable giving.
