Dress up for Santa fun run

Dress up for Santa fun run

THIS year’s Henley Santa fun run will take place on Sunday.

The run, which is ideal for families, will start and finish at the River & Rowing Museum in Mill Meadows. It will begin at 10am with registration from 9am.

The two-mile run will be off-road but is suitable for all ages. Participants can run, jog or walk. Participants are encouraged to wear festive fancy dress and will be provided with a free Santa hat on the day.

There will be prizes for the fastest runner under 14 and the best dressed adult, team, family and child under 10. Hot soup and mince pies will be provided at the finish.

The event, which is sponsored by the Henley Standard and IBS Office Solutions, is being organised by town councillor Sarah Miller and former councillor Pam Phillips, who launched it when she was mayor in 2011.

Mrs Phillips says: “The emphasis is on fun and it’s for families.”

The run will be raising money for current Mayor Glen Lambert’s charities, Gillotts School, Henley Music School and the campaign to launch a respite service for dementia sufferers and their carers.

The cost of a family ticket is £15 and the cost for one adult is £5.
