The jolliest run of the year is back!

Join our iconic Santa Fun Run as we return to Colchester Castle Park.

The Santa Fun Run, now in its 14th consecutive year, is the ideal way to kick off your festive season and get fit at the same time, with friends, family and colleagues!

You can run, jog or walk the 5km or 3km routes around Colchester’s picture perfect Castle Park. Most of all you’ll be having fun while doing something amazing for the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, hospital, ward, department or appeal that means most to you – the choice is yours!

We've wrapped up a gift especially for you, a 10% early bird discount and ESNEFT staff receive FREE tickets throughout October 

Everyone gets a free Santa suit which we will give you on the day. Under 5's get a Santa hat.

So get yourself on the nice list and sign up today!
