Santa Claus is running to town - virtually
By Rob Freeman | 4th November 2020
It will not be your eyes playing tricks on you after a month in lockdown - that really could be Father Christmas running around the streets of Gloucester. Repeatedly.
The city's Santa Fun Run, scheduled for December 5, may have been cancelled but it will not stop festive athletes hitting the roads for charity.
Rather than coming together for the run, people are being invited to don their Santa outfits and run, walk or be pushed on a 1k or 5k route of their choice on the planned date or that week - just after the relaxation of the latest restrictions.
Organised but the Rotary Club of Gloucester, the virtual run is raising money for The James Hopkins Trust which cares for severely disable children.
Runners are asked to sign up as normal at glossantafunrun.co.uk and choose when and where they run.
Instead of medals, they will be awarded Santa Snoods which are also available to buy for £5.
Runners are also asked to post pictures from the event on social media with the hashtag #GlosSantaFunRun.
