Its beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas

With the festive feeling creeping into everyones lives and Christmas just 3 weeks away, the many Christmas themed races are well underway!

This festive race is 2 laps of undulating paths and trails around Chasewater Reservoir and is always a Christmas Cracker of an event enjoyed by many. Runners dressed up in their favourite festive character and joined in celebrating the festive season to take part in the either 10k or 5k.
