Join this great event in Swinley Forest on Sunday 30 November

Kick-off Christmas with our much-loved festive fundraiser. Like the annual Santa Dash, only bigger and better, this year the whole family can get festive Dashing, or try new additions and cycle or swing through the trees to raise funds for Thames Hospice. The fun starts from 9am on Sunday 30 November.

Choose from or tackle a combination of the following:

• Santa Cycle 10k - 9am - £20

• Rudolph’s Fun Run 2k - 10.30am - £5

• Santa Dash 5k - 11am - £20

• Go Ape Santa Swing - 9am/11am/1pm - £32

Feeling fit and festive? Why not take on the Santathlon and Dash, Cycle and Swing? - £50

Susan Blues, Thames Hospice Events Fundraiser, says: “We hope more than 500 people will dash, cycle or tackle Go Ape in our Santa Spectacular... and if you’re feeling fit and festive, we challenge you to take on all three! Let’s create the biggest sea of Santas in Berkshire!”

Each adult entry gets a Santa suit, goodie bag and refreshments. Children entering Rudolph’s Fun Run will receive reindeer antlers and flashing noses. Dogs can join you in the Santa Dash, but do not need to be registered.

To book, or for any questions, call 01753 848947, email sandra.hutchings@thameshospice.org.uk or visit www.thameshospice.org.uk/santaspectacular where early bird rates apply until 31st October (£15 for the Santa Dash and £15 for Santa Cycle).

Organised by Thames Hospice, the Santa Dash raises vital funds to support local people living with a life-limited illness and their families, this Christmas and beyond.
