9th December 2018 - Sconce & Devon Park, Newark

Thanks to our sponsors Asda, Bakkavor and Prime Print

This year we are hosting our first Santa Run, taking place on 9th December at Sconce and Devon Park, Newark. This is a family friendly event. Participants can walk, jog or run the 2 km course, which winds around the Beautiful Sconce Park. All runners will receive a free Santa suit, mince pie and a medal.

This is a fundraising event for Reach Learning Disability and all we ask is that you raise a minimum of £10 in sponsorship per person to help us raise all we can from this fantastic, fun filled event. To make raising sponsorship easy we have set up a Just Giving page linked to the event. Simply go here to donate to our campaign page , or here to create your own sponsor page.
