Santa run

A family friendly run is on today (9th December), with runners in fancy dress going around the racing circuit.

If you see people dressed up in Santa suits today, don't be shocked!

People from all over Wiltshire and Hampshire are taking on a fun run at Thruxton Motor Racing Circuit near Andover.

Every runner will be in fancy dress taking on laps of 3.5km - and they can do that once, twice, three or four times!

The track is very flat so great for both first time runners or those looking for a quick time.

It's traffic free too so no need for stopping and there aren't many chances to run around a racing circuit.


If you haven't signed up yet, you can do that today if you get there before 10.40am.

It costs between £5 and £12 and you get a Santa outfit if you don't already have one.

All runners will also get a medal and a good bag, including a selection box, cracker and more.

10% of your race entry fee will go directly to the Enham Trust.
