If you’re looking for a festive fitness fix, you can now sign up to the city’s Santa Stroll.

For this charity event in the city you’ll be supplied with a Santa outfit complete with a beard and belt and you can either walk, jog or run a 5km (3 mile) course.

The stroll will start from Serpentine Green Shopping Centre at 10am on Sunday December 17.

Councillor Steve Allen, cabinet advisor to the Leader, said: “The Santa Stroll is set to be a fantastic event and we hope that lots of residents get involved in the fun while supporting some local good causes.  This is the first time the council has organised the stroll and we’re grateful for the support we have received from Serpentine Green Shopping Centre.”


David Wait, centre manager at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre, said: “We’re really excited to be supporting such a great family event in the city and we hope it gets people in the festive spirit.”

Entry forms will be available from Serpentine Green Shopping Centre and the Visitor Information Centre in the city centre from Saturday September 23.

Entry for adults is £15, youths (9 to 14 years) £10, juniors (5 to 8 years) £7, families (2 adults and 2 children) £40. Each participant will receive a Santa suit as part of their entry fee to wear on the stroll and a medal at the finish line.

£1 from each runner will be pledged to raise funds for the Mayor’s charities.

There will be refreshments available on the day.
