Active Life is once again supporting Santas on the Run this year! We are hoping our members will once again pull on a Santa suit and take part or join Active Life’s staff as one of Santa’s team of helpers on the day. The first year of Santas on the Run was in 2017 which took place in Herne Bay and saw around 800 runners (and walkers!) take part in the event, although last year we reached around 1,100 people! Over the past two years that this event has taken place, Pilgrims Hospices have raised £60,000 towards the amazing work that they carry out each and every day. This year Santas on the Run will be taking place in three locations and you can decide whether to take part in one, two and all three challenges! You will receive a separate medal for each event and for those who complete the tri-series, you will receive an amazing 4th medal!

Santas on the Bay! (Herne Bay), Sunday 1st December
Early bird and Advanced entry includes a 5-piece Santa Suit and a medal. You’ll enjoy music by Herne Bay Concert Band as you prepare for your 3k or 5k route along the seafront and will be welcomed back with a mince pie! Santas on the Run! is an event for everyone. You can walk, run, jump or skip along Herne Bay seafront with your friends, family, colleagues or neighbours. Buggies, wheelchairs and sleighs are all welcome to join in the festive fun. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee Santa Suits for those who sign up on the day, so we highly advise that you register in advance to secure your Santa Suit! If you’re registering a family we recommend you do this in advance as family tickets won’t be available on the day for single events or the tri-series.
