After two hugely successful years the third annual Highland Santa Run returns to Inverness on Sunday 29th November to kick off the Christmas season in style. The 2008 Santa Run saw hundreds of people from across Inverness, the Highlands and Moray take part in this 5km fun run with a festive twist....all participants were dressed as Santa! You can register to be part of the fun at the UK's most northerly Santa Run now.
The Highland Santa Run follows a beautiful 5km route along Inverness's riverside, passing beneath the iconic castle and weaving through the Ness Islands. The event is open to all ages and abilities, whether you want to go for a serious run (well, as serious as you can be in a Santa Suit!) or jog or walk around the course with your friends, family or colleagues.
The Santa Run is being held to raise money for WildHearts, a dynamic Scottish charity that provides microloans and business training to help people in the developing world work their own way out of poverty, giving them a hand up and not a hand out. Your sponsorship money will be re-lent for years to come, now that's a Christmas gift that will keep on giving! Participants can set their own fundraising target, but everyone should raise a minimum of £30 for WildHearts.
To register now just hit 'sign me up'! Registration for adults is £15 which includes a full Santa Suit and registration for kids is £12.50 which includes a special "Wee Santa" t-shirt and Santa hat. Plus, all participants receive a medal and goody bag! If you're registering a team please fill out your details on page one of the registration form and then proceed to page two to register your other team mates or Wee Santas. During the registration process the organisers will automatically create an online fundraising page for you, which makes raising sponsorship quick, easy and fun! You can edit the text on this page and upload a photo straight away or you can come back later to amend it (just remember your password). Paper registration forms are also available on request from firstname.lastname@example.org
