The 2017 Monmouth Santa Fun Run Saw a Record-Breaking 491 Santas Take Part!

The annual Monmouth Santa Fun Run took place on Sunday, 3rd December in near perfect conditions. A staggering and record breaking 491 Santas took to the streets raising money for this year’s chosen charities, Sense Cymru and the Monmouth and District Foodbank. This is an annual event, organised and marshalled by the runners of the Spirit of Monmouth Running Club.

Our special thanks go to Barclays Bank for their matched funding, Monmouth Boys School and School Sports Club, Wyemedia,  The Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club, Timpson, Brighter Food, Wild Trail, Cafe2U (Quedgeley), Monmouthshire County Council, and all of the Spirit of Monmouth RC members who turned out to ensure a festive and safe fun run for all.
We hope to have raised in excess of £2000 for this year’s chosen charities.

Winners of the Fun Run categories were as follows:

Best Dressed Junior Boy Santa was Caleb Evans.
Best dressed Junior Girl Santas went to Erin Glossley and Skye Chandler.

Best dressed Mummy and Daddy Santa prizes were awarded to to Steve and Sarah Hougham

Best dressed team prize went to Team Fit ’n Elfie aka Family Nash

And our special prize for best effort, endeavour and enthusiasm went to Naomi Crook who hasn’t missed a Santa Fun Run yet. Pictured here with Race Organiser, Stuart Kramer.

We hope to see you all again next year – December 2nd 2018!
