WHY not cut a dash in the run-up to Christmas – in your very own Santa suit – and put a jingle in the stocking of your favourite charity?
That’s the invitation being issued by the Rotary Club of Dunfermline, as they prepare to bring scores of Santas under starter’s orders for Dunfermline’s inaugural Santa Dash.
The festive fun run, from the top of New Row to the Glen Gates, is being staged at 1pm on Saturday, 17th November, as a novel curtain-raiser for the switch-on of the city’s Christmas lights later that day.
All the event profits will be channelled into the club’s charity trust fund, which donates to good causes in Dunfermline, Fife and beyond.
Community convener Graham Steedman directs prospective individual and team entrants to the registration portal at dunfermlinerotary.org.uk
“For the entry fee of £10, we will provide Dashers with a Santa suit to keep and a finisher’s medal,” he says. “So why not use this event for your own charity collection purposes and raise money for even more good causes?”
The Dash is open to all “who have had eight or more birthdays”, and the field of subordinate Clauses will set the scene for the later arrival of Father Christmas aboard the Rotary Club’s special sleigh for the celebrity switch-on of the 2018 Christmas lights.
