Join our ever-popular Christmas fun run

This fun Christmas challenge is designed to be flexible for every school to fit it within the PE curriculum or as a fun extra-curricular activity. A simple outdoor activity for everyone at school (teachers included!).

We know that Christmas can be a busy time, so we’ve made it super simple for any school or college to take part.

How does it work?

Run as a class!  Run with the whole school!

  • Hold your run between 2 and 20 December.
  • Set a distance for each class to run.
  • The whole school can run on one day or over several days.
  • Each pupil pays a small entrance fee and we’ll supply a free Santa hat for them to run in.
  • All funds go to Katharine House Hospice. We’d love you to encourage your children to get sponsored to do their run.

What will my school receive?

A free Santa hat for every participating pupil.

Plus our special Santa Fun Run toolkit, which includes:

  • a specially made short film to use in class or a virtual assembly and to share with parents.
  • a letter for parents and carers with information about Katharine House.
  • downloadable sponsorship forms.
  • downloadable posters to publicise your event to parents and children.
  • downloadable certificates for you to print off for every participating child.
