Ready? Set? Go-Ho-Ho!

The fabulously festive Rugby Santa Run is back for its eighth year! Dust off your running shoes and join hundreds of other Santas at Rugby Athletics Track for a morning of fitness and festive fun. Organised jointly by Rugby & Northampton Athletic Club and Rotary Club of Rugby, and sponsored by Nicholls Building & Plumbing Merchants , this year's event takes place on Sunday 1st December.

With races suitable for every age - from tiny tots to grandparents - it's the perfect way to kickstart Christmas for the whole family.


The fun starts at 10am with the Mini Santa Lap - a lap of the track for under 8s. The 1 mile Santa Dash follows at 10.20am - open to everyone age 6+. The main 5K Santa Fun Run is suitable for all abilities age 8+ and starts at 10.45am.

Santa suits and medals are included in the entry fee and there are prizes for individual winners, as well as spot prizes.

Local businesses, schools and clubs are encouraged to battle it out for the Santa Run Cup. You can have as many runners in a team as you choose, with the top three runners in the 5K scoring for the team prize.

As well as having fun, Santa runners will be helping local good causes as all proceeds will be shared between Rotary Club of Rugby and Rugby & Northampton Athletic Club.
