The Medway Santa Fun Run Is Back.
After 2 years of Covid the Santa Fun Run has added a professionally timed 5km and 10km run, throughout The Historic Dockyard Chartham.
Join us for this unique opportunity to run past over 400 years of Naval history. You will run through cobbled streets, pass historic buildings and slipways that are now used in the backdrop to many movies and TV sets.
So make the run, watch films that include Bridgerton, Call the Midwife (currently filming series 3), Downton Abbey, The Mummy, Children Of Men, Les Miserables, Sherlock Holmes, Operation Mincemeat, The World Is Not Enough, The Golden Compass, Peterloo and Mr Selfridge so you can say, 'Hey, I ran past there'.
You will also pass the RNLI historic lifeboat collectiom, the historic railway, the Ropery that is inself over 1100 feet long and see HMS Gannet built in 1878, HMS Cavalier 1944 and HMS Ocelot the last submarine built in Chatham in 1962.
This is the first time this important historic site has been used for a serious running event so we are limited to 500 timed runners.
If your'e not the athletic type then why not have a 'funrun' with 500 other costumed Santas. Whichever event you choose you'll have a great time.
