This is a Fun Run which is not timed so is not a race. Runners can walk as much as they like. The route goes through public areas (streets, shopping areas etc.) and the public, bystanders and supporters should be treated with respect and given priority. Be aware, the public will be of all ages - old, young, fit and not so fit and may have pets in tow.
There will be qualified First Aiders present, but participants are responsible for their own safety, including their fitness to do the event.
Children (under 16s) should be accompanied by an adult. Under 8s must only run the short route.
Much of the route is in the Newbury Town centre pedestrian area. Crossings of minor roads will be supervised by Fun Run Marshalls. Runners must obey the direction of the Marshalls but should also check the roads are clear before crossing.
Newbury Rotary Club would like to thank Thatcham and Hungerford Rotary Clubs for their help and support who have their own Santa Fun Run events on Sunday 10th December.
