The Great Lutterworth Santa Fun Run has become one of the major events in the Lutterworth Calendar. Every year, many hundreds of local people run (or walk) one of the two courses in a carnival atmosphere raising tens of thousands of pounds for local and international charities.

The 2018 date for the 10th Lutterworth Santa Fun Run is Sunday, 2nd December.

What We’re About

The Lutterworth Santa Fun Run is organised by the two Rotary Clubs of Lutterworth, The Lutterworth Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Lutterworth Wycliffe, and over the nine years this event has been running, a staggering £103,000 has been raised for local and international charities.

The 2018 Santa Fun Run

There were 550 Santas who took part in the 2018 Santa Fun Run on December 2nd, running, walking or ambling round one of the two courses in aid of their chosen charity.  There were concerns beforehand that competition from other fun runs being held on the same day would impact on numbers taking part but organisers were pleased with the turnout that included many families, some covering three generations.  The shorter course was 4km with the longer course 5.5km, and once again, the event was blessed with good weather.  There was a real carnival atmosphere with coffee and mince pies being handed round at the finish by the Pathway Community Church – all to the sound of Christmas carols from the Lutterworth Town Band.   Both Rotary Clubs would like to thank all those who took part and made the day a very special occasion;  our sponsors who support us every year, the marshals who ensure the participants complete the course in safety, the organising committee who devote so much time and effort to ensure the day is a success, and the Lutterworth College for hosting the event.  Chairman of the organising committee, John Turner, said ‘We are very pleased with how things turned. As the number of fun runs has increased, ours has become more of a local, town event with a great community spirit. Everyone I spoke to, once they had recovered from their efforts, said how much they enjoyed the day and that it was nice to see so many families with young children, many of whom seemed to be leading their parents round!’
