This event is very much a family affair and everyone is welcome, even well behaved dogs! The event sold out incredibly quickly last year and because it was so popular it is being held twice!

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of your race.

Kit List

Nothing is compulsory but this is a very colourful event so festive outfits are encouraged.


Whilst it would be better to take part, spectators are more than welcome at this event to help cheer the runners along.
