The Christmas Cracker run is organised by Weston Athletic Club. All the profits are donated to Weston Hospicecare. The Christmas Cracker is a festive-themed 10k run along Weston seafront. In 2019, more than £10,000 was raised for your hospice through entry fees and fundraising.
The Virtual Christmas Cracker is new for 2020 and we’d love for you to join in! Weston Athletic Club have said “ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all runners, marshals and spectators is our first priority when organising any of our events.”
The club wanted to find a way to put on the event. Postponing the event would have had a big impact on the hospice’s fundraising income for December. All our fantastic runners will still be able to enjoy their own festive run and receive their medal to show off their achievement while supporting Weston Hospicecare.
The Christmas Cracker fancy dress competition will still take place. Weston Athletic Club are asking for you to post photos of your festive runs to the Cracker Facebook page. Be sure to get sharing, the most liked photo in each category will be crowned the winner.
We are extremely grateful to Weston Athletic Club for organising the Virtual Christmas Cracker this year and we can’t wait to see how you all get on!
