Title: Santa’s Fun Run Marlow - book before 17 November for price reduction
Post by: Cookham Webmaster on October 05, 2022, 06:46:39 PM
The Santa’s Fun Run (which welcomes both runners and walkers) will see potentially thousands of Santas dashing for local charities – with an aim to raise £60,000.

This year the two lead charities are One Can Trust and Marlow United Charities, both centred on supporting those in need.

The frenetic Santa run takes place at 9.30am on Sunday, December 4 – with entrants congregating at Higginson Park, Marlow from 8am.

Marlow Rotary Club president Chris Kelsey said: “We want to create a fantastic fun weekend that includes teams from local businesses, schools, churches, charities, scout and guide groups, families, neighbourhoods, clubs – all running or walking for a great cause. We want the course to be a sea of red Santas.”

The organisers – all three Marlow Rotary clubs – are also introducing a carbon offset initiative for the first time.

All funds received via the ‘donate’ button on the event website will be directed towards incremental tree planting in the South Bucks area.

There are also some pricing changes to encourage early entries.

Entrants booking before November 17 will be charged £15 for each adult and £7.50 for each young person (5-17 years). There is no charge for under-five-year-olds.

After this date, the entry price increases to £20 per adult and £10 for each young person. Entries can now be made at
