Ashby Santa Fun Run Confirmed to Return in 2022!
We are delighted to announce the return of the Ashby Santa Fun Run & Walk 2022! We were really pleased with how things went at the return of the event in 2021 following easement of Covid restrictions and can't wait to welcome back lots of Santas again this year! Held as normal over the Ashby Christmas lights switch on weekend, we'll be holding our event on Sunday 4th 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 made a few changes to last years event and these seemed to go down well with last years entrants so we'll be looking to roll these forward again for this year. We now how difficult these times are with seemingly everything going up in price so we're pleased to announce that we are retaining last years reduced price of entry at just £6 for all ages. We'll again be asking people to dress in their best, bright Christmas clothes/fancy dress. This could be a Santa hat, a Christmas jumper or a full Santa or Christmas suit, whatever you choose.....obviously the bigger, brighter and more festive the better!
