Virtual 5K Santa Run 2020

Like you all, we wish we could be getting together on the 13th of December to don our Santa Outfits, do a warmup with Lynne, and Run, Walk or Jog 5K in support of Hope House Essex. But like everything else this year, whilst we can’t get together in person we have moved our Santa Run online to still raise as much as we can for Hope House Essex in a time where your help is more needed than ever!

So join us on the 13th of December, on our livestream to run, walk, or jog 5K or cycle 5 miles in a Santa suit (or in a Christmassy outfit of your choice)! Once you have completed your ‘run’, send a Santa Selfie to us on social media using the hashtag #HHSantaSelfie and we will contact you to get your participation medal sent out! If you can’t join us live on the 13th, you can still participate on any date before Christmas Eve and we will get your medal sent out in the new year!

For those living locally, your free Santa Suit can be collected from Stationery Solutions in Braintree from the 1st of December and the code word that must be given to collect shall be sent out nearer the time.

There will be a prize for the best #HHSantaSelfie and if you raise over £100 in sponsorship, we will refund your entry fee!

To get your sponsorship, we recommend using Facebook Donate as we get 100% of the donations! We will send out more information about how to do this when you purchase tickets.

If you have never run before, don’t worry! Sign up for the NHS ‘Couch to 5K’ plan and get fit in time for December! https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/
