After the success of last 2yrs of The Christmas Day Cracker Run, join us for our third Christmas Day run! If you prefer to put on a pair of trainers rather than open presents, drink and eat Christmas dinner, then this event is for you!
We welcome runners of all abilities and you are allowed to run or walk the course.
Compulsory Kit: If you wish to run before 7:30am, you will need to use a headtorch for the first hour of the event.
Distance & Time: This is a 7hr Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a full lap. A full lap is 4.37 miles (7km) and you can run as many or as few of these laps as you wish in the 7hr time limit.
Course: The course is along a beautiful stretch of the River Thames. It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required.
Medals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic Christmas themed medal.
Mini-Me Pins: Our "mini-me medal pins" are available for the first 100 entrants only. If you collect these fabulous pins, you need to enter quickly as they are allocated on a strict first come first served basis.
Distance Pins: We have distance pins for all runners who do a half-marathon or more.
There will be a distance pin for all runners who complete either a half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, 50km or Ultra in the 7hr time limit which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
Goody Bag: Absolutely! You have earned these replacement calories after all, so all our finishers get a great goody bag. You will have a selection of goodies to choose from. As well as our standard goody bag, we have a vegan goody bag too. Please remember to let us know if you are vegan or if you prefer a vegan goody bag when you enter and we can have this ready for you.
Christmas Present: We can't have you leaving without a gift from Santa's stocking!
Christmas Dinner Aid Table: It's a full Christmas Dinner aid table, with roast potatoes, parsnips, sprouts, roast ham and a nut roast for our vegan friends. With mince pies and a little tipple of something also available, its Christmas Day with running built around it!
We have managed to maintain our aid table throughout the pandemic with our COVID secure policies, approved by various SAG and Public Health teams across the UK.
Special Event: If our event is a special event for you, for instance your 50th, 99th, 100th, 150th, 200th, 250th etc. marathon or half marathon then please let us know. We will provide you with a great number with your name and the event date on it. Also, if it is your birthday, again let us know and we will get you a special number for your birthday!
Toilet & Changing Facilities: Toilets are available at the start / finish area inside the venue HQ. There are changing facilities inside the venue.
Parking: There is a large public car park available for you to use. It has a Parking Eye set up, so please ensure you remember to pay when you leave.
Other Info: There will be an area for kit bags to be left. This area is not watched and any bags left will be at the runner's own risk. Baggage areas are subject to COVID rule changes.
