The Spireites and Chesterfield FC Community Trust will once again support the Santa Fun Run in Queen's Park, which will raise funds for various local charities.
The third Chesterfield 5k Santa Fun Run & Walk and 1500m Santa Fun Run & Walk will take place on Sunday, December 23, with both events sponsored by Unit 1 Martial Arts and Fitness.
Last year’s event, which was attended by around 1,300 people, raised over £10,000 and it is hoped that the figure will be topped this time, with funds being raised for Ashgate Hospicecare, the Mayor’s Appeal - Ashgate Hospicecare’s Sponsor a Nurse - and Citizens Advice Chesterfield.
Organiser John Cannon said: “It is the second biggest community event in Chesterfield - after the Sparkle Walk - so it is great for the town. I’d encourage families to take part as it’s a fun event which helps to raise valuable funds for local charities.”
The kids’ race, which starts at 9.30am, will cost £5.50 for children aged 10 & under and £7.50 for 11-15-year-olds. The adults race starts an hour later and costs £12.50 to enter. All those who enter will receive a Santa suit, together with a goodie bag and medal.
Bookings should be made online via www.cannonevents.co.uk as no entries will be taken on the day.
