- Sun 9th December 2018 - The Santa Fun Run


A great day for Santa's Fun Run

Over 80 runners turned out for this year's Santa's Fun Run organised by Hungerford Rotary club to raise funds for both International and local Charities. After a Zumba warm up, led by Connor Stephenson from Herongate the runners left from the John O'Gaunt school and made their way along Priory road, down the High Street and along the canal tow path where they continued onto the common and back to the start. There were lots of families entering, often complete with babies in all terrain buggies and the family dog. All those taking part were seasonally clad in full Santa outfits which made quite a show on Hungerford High street. Many of the runners and walkers were sponsored to raise funds for their own charities. The prizes were presented by Hungerford's Mayor Helen Simpson to the winner Andrew Davy, the second place George Styles and the third place Wilf Waldon.With such a successful event this year I am sure that the 2019 Santa Fun Run will be even bigger and better .
