'Tis the season for the jolliest jog of the year and Santa Claus and his friends are coming to a town near you...
The Festive Tri-Series is back!
Ho, ho, ho clear your diary this December as we've got just the thing to get the whole family in the festive spirit whilst raising vital funds for local hospice care this Christmas.
Each year we bring you the jolliest jog of the year and this December, we're bringing you not one, but three! We're excited to invite you to join your local 3k or 5k fun run or challenge yourself to all 3 and join our tri-series in the countdown to Christmas. You'll get to enjoy Christmas come early in 3 seaside towns whilst testing yourself to complete 3 festive fun runs, and you'll get 3 festive medals, plus a special fourth Christmas present medal for those who complete the challenge! Be sure to get your Christmas card stamped at each event to receive your impressive Christmas present medal.
Entry for each event includes a 5-piece Santa suit, a festive medal and a Christmas present medal for those completing the tri. You’ll enjoy merry music as you prepare for your 3k or 5k route along each seafront and will be welcomed back with a mince pie!
The Festive Tri-Series is an event for everyone so join us for the magic of Christmas. You can walk, run, jump or skip along the seafront with your friends, family, colleagues or neighbours. Buggies, wheelchairs and sleighs are all welcome to join in the fun.
Please be aware that each of our events has a maximum capacity and entry will close as soon as capacity is reached, so we highly advise that you register early to avoid disappointment
