Arthur Rank Hospice Charity’s Festive Run kicks off the festive season on Sunday 28 November!
With the safety of our supporters, volunteers and colleagues remaining a priority as we enter the winter months, we are happy to announce this year’s event will be held remotely for the second time. This allows us to retain the accessibility and inclusivity gained last year, which you told us was really important in the fantastic feedback you gave us. And we’re going one further – this year, we’re adding a second distance option!
- When: Set off at 10am on Sunday 28 November (or whenever suits you best!)
- Where: Choose your own 5km or 10km route…dash from your doorstep or finish at a favourite place
- How: Be a sprinting Santa, jingle as you jog, pace it as a (Christmas) pud – whatever method you choose and whatever lengths your fancy dress goes to, you’ll be sure to spread festive cheer
- Why: To help people in Cambridgeshire who are living with a progressive illness this winter
Adult £10 | Child (under 16) £5
Festive Runners who sign up before 23.59 on Sunday 21 November will receive a specially-made Festive Run pack including Santa hat, runner number, fundraising tips and treats to keep you going!
You can do your Festive Run wherever and whenever is convenient for you! Solo or with friends, as teams of colleagues pitted against each other, or as an all-age family-fundraising effort. It’ll give us something to look forward to for winter, or a fitness goal to work towards, or just give us that warm glow from doing a good deed for a local Charity which needs our help.
With huge thanks to the Festive Run 2021’s sponsors, Price Bailey and Busy Bee Recruitment, whose support makes this event possible.
2020’s first remote Festive Run participants told us:
“This worked really well as a continuation of our fundraising efforts this year. It was nice to be able to do it in our home village and bring a bit of festivity through the Christmas apparel and music we played on the way round. Great to cross paths with others on our route too!”
“I enjoyed doing it locally with my running number on, and lots of people were cheering me on as they could see who I was running for!”
If the date or time doesn’t suit you, but you’d still like to join in the festivities, please get in touch with us, we’d love to support you.
