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!
Charities Announced for 2023 Santa Fun Run & Walk
Following careful consideration, the organising committee have announced the charities to be supported at the 2023 Santa Fun Run & Walk. Continuing the theme of supporting smaller local charities, net proceeds from this years event will be shared between Hospice Hope, Home Start and Me & Dee.
All of these charities do fantastic work in the local area and provide support to all ages. We look forward to working closely with them all for this years event. To find out more about the work that these great charities do, please see our charity information page.
The Ashby Santa Fun Run and Walk is a charity event organised by the Rotary Club of Ashby de la Zouch Castle.
It consists of a 3km run or walk around Ashby de la Zouch dressed as Santa or a Christmas fancy dress outfit of your choice!
