Only a few days left to register for Santa run

More than 750 people will hit the streets of Winchester on 1st December for the annual Naomi House & Jacksplace Santa Fun Run.


The yearly spectacle is a firm favourite in the local hospice’s event calendar, and could see as much as £40,000 raised to care for life limited children and young adults across the Wessex region.


Starting at 9am, runners in their Santa suits will set off from The Broadway before making their way past King Alfred’s Statue, past Winchester College, Winchester Cathedral and sprinting to the finish line down Winchester High Street. Finishers will be greeted by Christmas music, snow, mince pies and a bespoke medal.


The money raised from the event could fund five days of care at Naomi House.


The Santa Fun Run has grown in popularity over the 11 years it has taken place, with the charity needing to find ever-larger venues to accommodate the Santas.


Online entry to the Santa Fun Run is open until 27th November, after which runners will need to register on the day. Places cost £20 for adults and £15 for children with free Santa suits provided. To sign up visit www.naomihouse.org.uk.
