Around 1,300 people have signed up to take part in the CBD Training Ltd Chesterfield 5k Santa Fun Run & Walk and Unit 1 Martial Arts 1500m Santa Fun Run & Walk in Queen’s Park on Christmas Eve!
The event is being supported by the club and the Chesterfield FC Community Trust.
Organiser John Cannon, who staged the first Santa Fun Run 12 months ago, is delighted with the response. He said: “People will be travelling from all over England and abroad to take part, all dressed as Santa, which is fantastic.
“With Christmas carols from Ashover Band, together with demonstrations from Unit 1 Martial Arts, a Chesterfield FC Community Trust target game, stalls and walking football, it promises to be a great day!”
Money raised from the event will be split equally between Ashgate Hospicecare, Weston Park Cancer Charity and retreat@Royal for the Mayor’s Appeal.
