What better way to get into the festive spirit than with a 10k run! With your support this Christmas, we can bring the joy to thousands of people in Bristol and Weston who'll be spending the festive season in hospital.

This cracker of a course covers tarmac and beach, and there's refreshments available on the day. All finishers receive a Weston Christmas Cracker t-shirt. The race is suitable for all abilities. 

There's a prize for the best fancy dress too, so don your best Santa suit for this one!

Closing date for entries is 20th November

The Junior Cracker

There is also a shorter route for the whole family to get involved. The course is an accurate flat 2k and stays entirely on the beach. The route will go south for 1km from the Grand Pier and then return straight back.
