The 5th Northampton Santa Run will be held on Sunday 10th December 2023 at Northampton Racecourse. (NN1 4LG)
The Santa Fun Run is organised by the four Northampton Rotary Clubs together with Northampton Town Rotaract Club. This is a ‘ not for profit ’ event which means it is run entirely by unpaid volunteers and all net monies raised will be donated to Local Charities.

Rotary is the largest worldwide charitable organisation and each British Rotary Club is registered separately with the Charity Commission.

You choose which Charity you will be raising funds for and your sponsors can support you through our Santa Run 2023 TotalGiving pages.

In addition, like last year all profit from entry fees will be donated to support local Rotary projects such as taking youngsters to the pantomime, supporting food banks, activities and days out for those with special needs.

Join us on Sunday 10th December at the Racecourse with lots of other Santas.

We will endeavour to make our event as safe as possible with spaced-out warmups and starting times.

Registration and payment can be completed on the sign-up page.

The cost is £12 per adult with a suit and medal, and £7 for children with a suit and medal. We are also offering a Family Concession of £32 for 2 adults and 2 children with suits and medals.

Once you have entered you will receive a confirmation email. Santa Suit* and medal can be posted/delivered to your address or collected from Sainsbury’s Supermarket Sixfields Entrance Foyer (NN5 5DG) on the 2nd of December between 10 am and 2 pm.

*Corporate team entries wear their own tabards for their charities and may purchase a suit in addition.

Entry Fees cover the cost of running the event and you are encouraged to raise as much sponsorship as possible for Local Charities by creating a TotalGiving page here.

All are welcome to take part regardless of ability and everyone that enters will receive a Santa suit and medal. The more the merrier.

Covid-19 Precautions

During our event we want everyone to have fun but also to be safe. Each person that enters will be required to conform to any government or local Covid-19 requirements. Please ensure that you do not break any local restrictions while completing your challenge. Wash your hands regularly and create space to stay safe.

Personal Sponsorship

To add to your enjoyment of the challenge, why not raise personal sponsorship from families, friends and colleagues to support your chosen charities. Our chosen charities are not Government-sponsored and rely heavily on private donations to enable them to provide great support to people who need their services.

IOO% of sponsorship monies raised including gift aid ( if personally applicable, it can make a big 20% difference) will go to the nominated charities as detailed on Total Giving 2023. This is really important for the nominated charities so please raise sponsorship and donate to our good causes.

To raise funds for your chosen local cause please go to our TotalGiving page and create your own page.

Donations can be made by cheque payable to The Rotary Clubs of Northampton Charitable Trust Fund and posted to our Treasurer, Northampton Rotary Charity Fun Run/Walk, 64 Church Street, Broughton, Kettering, Northants NN14 1LU.
