Over 450 Santas of all ages took part in our festive Santa Fun Run on Sunday 3 December, which this year started and finished at the Woking Leisure Centre and took the runners around Woking Park. It was a fantastic turnout with families made up of several generations running, jogging or walking the 3km or 5km course. Christmas songs from Herd of Sax added to the festive atmosphere.
Woking & Sam Beare Hospices CEO Jayne Cooper was there to thank the runners for their festive fundraising before sending them off, and it was a fantastic sight when a sea of Santas poured out into the park, and lighting it up in their festive red suits.
Events Fundraising Manager Rachelle Barnett was delighted with the turnout; ‘There was such a great atmosphere and even the weather was with us as it stopped raining as the run started. I would like to thank the Woking Leisure Centre team, Herd of Sax, Harpers and Surrey Raynet for technical support, as well as our amazing volunteers and marshals, without whom this event would not have been possible.’
