Did the Santa in the City - 4k in 2021
Great event overall. The vibe was amazing and although the course was a little short of 5k the team did a great job on the day adhering to covid guidelines which would have made planning the event a nightmare with the constant changes! Can't wait to do next years event

Did the Santa in the City - 4k in 2021
The energy is nice but I was expecting run 5k and the running was just 3.8k wasn’t just me. Few people complain too when u finished. And for the price the organization was pretty poor. The idea is amazing e could be better.
Did the Santa in the City - 4k in 2021
Great fun, but nowhere near the 5k as listed in the advert. We paid £30 to run only 3.7k run. I guess we could keep the Santa suit….

Great event. Advertised as a 5km but the distance was less. The route was different this year and cut out Millennium Bridge which is probably why it wasn't quite 5km.
