Join the festive fun runs

A date for the festive diary - Rugby’s Santa Run is coming! Santas across the town are on standby to dust off their running shoes and head to the track at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Leisure Centre for a morning of festive fun. Now in its 4th year, this year’s Santa Run, organised jointly by Rugby & Northampton Athletics Club and The Rotary Club of Rugby, will be held at 10am on Sunday, 13th December. In addition to the main 5K Santa Run there will be a 1 mile Santa Dash as well as a 1 lap race for mini Santas aged 7 and under.
