I'm a Mum of two boys living in Oxfordshire, enjoying lots of fun activities and writing about them when I get a chance.

Santas On The Run

Christmas is fast approaching, but before you get distracted by present shopping and planning lunch, why not get into the festive spirit and make a difference.

Santas on the Run is a charity that works throughout the UK to raise funds for children's hospices. There are 32 events running across the UK and this year, Oxford will have the pleasure on 9th December.

So what can you expect? Imagine, lots of Santas young and old and full of goodwill and cheer, running, jogging or walking through Oxford. It will be quite a sight I'm sure.

Santas On The Run Oxford 2011


It's a 2 mile fun run starting on Catte Street at 9:30am so easy for anyone to take part in. The Santa suits are even provided for anyone over five so you don't need to worry about finding a costume.

Adults 14, Children over 5 10 and a family of 4 is just 35 (under 5's are free). The money raised in Oxford will go to Helen & Douglas House, a well known local charity that provides hospice care for children and young adults. Now in their 30th year this is a very worthy charity to support.

It's really easy to sign up, just click on the link on the Helen & Douglas website.
