WIMBORNE is set to be invaded by Santas once again – on the run for a good cause.
The Santa-Stour River Fun Run comes to town on Sunday, December 4.
Organised by Wimborne Rotary, the event aims to raise funds for local children’s charities.
Starting at 10am from Wimborne Football Club, in Ainsley Road, entrants and spectators can utilise free parking, with runners able to choose from either a 2.5km or 5km course, with routes running alongside the River Stour.
Wimborne Rotary president Ron Franks said people could enjoy a new route for 2022.
“With an interesting new route for runners this year, I am delighted that Rotary is able to mark the start of the festive season with our traditional Santa Fun Run,” he said.
“We hope that runners will enjoy this fun event while at the same time supporting our fundraising for Julia’s House.”
He also urged people to register to take part before the event.
“Please do register if you plan to enter so that we can be fully prepared to welcome your participation,” he added.
Entry costs £10 for adults and £5 for under-18s, with all proceeds going to local charity Julia’s House.
Entrants should pre-book by registering at www.wimbornerotary.org/giving.
There will also be limited places for those who turn up on the day, but with pre-booking guaranteeing a place.
All entrants will receive a free Santa suit and a mince pie.
Whether entering as an individual, a family or as a team, runners are also encouraged to fundraise for their own favourite charities by seeking sponsorship.
