Santa Run in London - Run 4 Cancer

Run 4 Cancer supporters from all around London and the South-East will be dressing up as Santa Claus on Sunday 7 December

Run 4 Cancer supporters from all around London and the South-East will be dressing up as Santa Claus on Sunday 7 December for the 2014 Santa Run London.

This year's Santa Run takes place in Victoria Park which is London’s oldest public park. Opened to the public in 1845, Victoria Park has been used for nearly 170 years as a place of recreation and sport. It was voted the nation’s favourite park last year.

For this year’s Santa Run, runners can choose between 5Km and 10Km courses. Open to people aged eight and above, the course is also suitable for wheelchair users. Over three thousand Santas are expected to take part in this year’s run!

For the £22 entry fee, Run 4 Cancer supporters receive a Santa Suit comprising hat, jacket, trousers, belt and beard. Runners are able to keep the Santa Suits after the race. Water stations and a finisher’s medal are also included.

To take part, runners are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship fund of £100. Once registered, each runner will be sent a link to their own secure fundraising page.

Commenting on the event, Run 4 Cancer Trustee Andy Hayward said “This year, I’ll be running in memory of my dad who died from lung cancer back in 1999. Running 10K in a Santa Suit will be quite a challenge but I am really looking forward to it. Thank you to all the people who have already signed up to Run 4 Cancer!”

With places strictly limited to 3000, places are selling fast. To register, visit http://www.run4cancer.org/santa-run-london

Run 4 Cancer was set up by a group of runners who have all lost a close friend or relative to cancer. Run 4 Cancer raises funds by taking part in running challenges all over Europe. The funds raised are used to provide days out for families living with cancer and to make grants to palliative care centres. The charity also supports research into the positive effects of exercise on health. Find out more about the charity at Run 4 Cancer at http://www.run4cancer.org
