Following the success of the previous Santa versus Rudolph Runs, Brighter Futures have again joined forces with the Swindon Phoenix Rotary Club to bring you our Christmas Run this year. After last years popular virtual race, we are excited to bring back Santa versus Rudolph.

Join us from 8:30am on Sunday 5th December to run, walk or jog 3k, 5k of 10k and there will be a spectacular Christmas medal as your reward. 

Registration opens at 8:30am with the warm up from 10:30am and the race starting at 11am. 

All profits raised will again be donated to Brighter Futures and Wiltshire Air Ambulance.  We have kept the entry price competitive, but would encourage you to set up fundraising pages or make a donation at the checkout.  Since the pandemic began in 2020, all charities income has been heavily impacted and every single penny raised will help to save lives locally.
