Entries for Exeter’s 2012 Santa Run are now open.

charity Santa Santa Run

If you love Christmas, running or watching Christmas-loving Santa’s running, then we’ve got a treat for you.

This could be you!

1.65km Santa-themed fun run will take place on Sunday 2nd December.

This year the event will start and finish at the Piazza Terracina, The Quay.

There is also a 5k run at the same time for those who think they’re hard enough.

Online entries can be submitted at and the standard entry fee is £11.

If getting into the Christmas spirit and raising money for charity isn’t enough for you, perhaps the Santa Fun Run medal you get on completion will sway you into getting involved.

Spokesman Hilary Allen said: “The sight of hundreds of Santas running along the River Exe should be quite a spectacle.”
