This is going to be such great fun!! Last year we had our first ever Christmas event. This year it just got even better. It's the same great event in an even better location - with kind permission of the Chatham Maritime Trust, it will be based at Dockside Square at Chatham Maritime. Music (yes Christmas music), mulled wine, mince pies, cake (essential runners food), reindeer antlers and lots of laughs. 5k or the fab new Family Fun Run. This year we are encouraging families to dress up for the Family Fun Run, with a prize for the best dressed runners!
The Christmas Cracker is a great way to burn off some excess calories before that hefty Christmas dinner. Bring the family and let them indulge in our onsite catering, free massages, children’s races, themed music and many other holiday activities.
As with all of our events we organise, we will be using the very latest electronic chip/transponder timing. The event is fully licensed and certified with all results being submitted to runbritain rankings and the Power of 10.
There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female in the 5k.
There will also be a family fun race for everyone. EVERY finisher in the will get a special Christmas Cracker Reindeer Run medal!
