What a Fantastic Event!

Thank you to every body who took part in the 2023 Ashby Santa Fun Run & Walk. Despite the cold and very festively snowy conditions we had a great morning down on the Bath Grounds with such great support from you all turning out despite the weather. Even having to make some late adjustments to the course and shortening the routes slightly due to the pavement conditions, there were smiles everywhere. We saw some fantastic festive fancy dress and you all look amazing!


We're busily working away now on sorting the money side of things and would be grateful if any of you collected sponsorship money you could get that collected in and brought to us as soon as possible. Details of how to do this are on our sign up page. Once we've collected everything in we'll be presenting the cheques to the charities in early January and then make a formal announcement as to how much money you've all helped us to raise this year!

Keep an eye out in the coming days for this years photographs to appear on the website and also our Facebook page! Thank you all so much for taking part in and supporting this years event and we look forward to welcoming you all back in 2024 for our 10th event! 

Ashby Santa Fun Run Confirmed to Return in 2023!

We are delighted to announce the return of the Ashby Santa Fun Run & Walk 2023! This will be the 9th year of the event and we want to make it bigger and better than ever. Held as normal over the Ashby Christmas lights switch on weekend, we'll be holding our event on Sunday 3rd December.

We'll be looking to open entries for this years event in October so keep an eye out here and on our Facebook page for details of when we're live.

We continue to develop this fun event and we'll be adding on some extra bits this year with extra entertainment on the Bath Grounds and a few other improvements that we'll announce in the coming weeks. We'll also be offering discounted family and group tickets to help to maintain the great value of this event which we hope will be welcome additions. We'll again be asking people to dress in their best, bright Christmas clothes/fancy dress with the added bonus this year of adding prizes for the best dressed children and adults! We're hoping to see plenty of Santa hats, Christmas jumpers or a full Santa or Christmas suit, whatever you choose.....obviously the bigger, brighter and more festive the better!

We do also have some Santa suits available in childrens sizes for purchase should you choose to at just £5 each and these will be available as usual at our stall in Market Street on the 3 Saturday's before the event.

All entrants will still receive a medal and there will also be a free chocolate bar for all children who enter.

Entries will be £7 per person for all ages with a new family ticket available for 2 adults and 2 children at £25.

Keep an eye here and on our Facebook page for further information about this years event and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
