The 2019 Santa Fun Run & Walk – 8th December 2019
The Cannon Events Clay Cross Santa Fun Run & Walk is now open for entries. This year’s event is planned to be bigger and better than last year, which saw people taking part from all over Derbyshire.
Our charity partner for 2019 is Ashgate Hospicecare.
There will be 2 fun runs again this year. Both fun runs start with a warm up at 10.45am with the run/walk starting at 11am. The distance is either 2.5k or 5k.
Participants aged 16 years + and children aged 11 to 15 years can choose to run/walk either the 2.5k or the 5k.
Children aged 10 years and under can only run/walk the 2.5k.

On footpaths and pavements behind Sharley Park Leisure Centre and Pilsley Road/Coney Green Road, the 5k is two laps and the 2.5k is 1 lap. The course is mainly traffic free apart from a short section on Pilsley Road, but will be marshalled. The course is suitable for all abilities to run/walk. A Santa Suit is included in the entry fee and all finishers will receive a commemorative medal.
