RESIDENTS are being urged to join this year’s Bicester Santa run and make it the best yet.
The Annual Santa Fun Run organised by Bicester Town Council raising money for the mayor’s charities.
This year Mayor Sean Gaul is supporting Rainbow Pre-School, OYAP Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support. It takes place on Sunday, December 16, and there is only 500 places available in the Santa Run.
Participants will meet in Pingle Field for a prompt 11am start before setting off to weave their way around the streets of Bicester town centre. Last year more than 400 runners took part.
Mayor Sean Gaul said: “The Santa run is such a fun day and one that is firmly on Bicester Town Council’s events calendar. “I am really looking forward to Sunday, December 16, to watch the sea of red Santa’s pounding the streets of Bicester. “I would urge people to sign up and have a good time as well as raise money for three good causes.”
Entry costs £10 per adult, £5 for children or £25 for a family ticket covering two adults and two children. The price includes a Santa suit, participation medal and bacon roll at the finish line.
The closing date for entries is December 7. People cannot register on the day.
Application forms are available via the website www.bicester.gov.uk, on the back page of the town council’s newsletter Garth Gazette, which has been delivered to all homes in Bicester, or in person from the Council offices. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
