Join the Cornish Santa Fun Run Series

Santa Claus is coming to town! Or rather, hundreds of Santa Clauses will be running through six Cornish towns as part of the Cornish Hospice Care’s annual Santa Fun Run series this November and December. Get into the festive spirit – and your Santa suit - and run with them!

Cornwall Hospice Care has planned six runs, each one with a slightly different twist to suit different timetables, locations and abilities, held between 27th November and 14th December. Join the Santa Night Run in Truro on the 27th; a dash the most westerly point in the British Isles at Land's End on the 30th; a beach run on 1st December in Newquay; a cycle and run in Padstow on the 7th; another run at Heartlands in Pool on the 8th; or experience Super Santa Day in Falmouth on the 14th December.

Each entrant is asked to raise £20.13 for the 2013 event and will receive a Santa costume to run in and a mince pie and a hot drink when they have finished.

Applications are available from the website or you can register online. Entry costs £10 for adults and £5 for children (under 14), except for on the Santa Cycle and Run, which is priced at £15 for adults and £10 for children (including bike hire if you haven't got your own with you).

The hospice provides specialist care and support to adults in Cornwall with life-limiting illnesses, along with their families, friends and carers.

If you plan to do one or more of these runs, check which holiday cottages we have near each location. Go to or call 01647 433593.
