Sea of Santas to join Gladiator ‘Tempest’ at Longleat (Sun 6 Dec)

tempest_santaA sea of Santas will join Gladiator ‘Tempest’ at Longleat on Sunday 6 December to help raise money for spinal cord injured people living in the region.

And there are still places available for those wishing to take part.

Top heptathlete Lucy Boggis, aka ‘Tempest’ in the cult tv series Gladiators , will lead the warm up to the Santa Fun Run.  Festive music and some gentle stretches led by Lucy will ensure the Santas are well prepared for their run, walk or push around Longleat.

The SSIT Santa Fun Run, which starts at 10.15am with Lucy’s warm-up in front of Longleat House, covers a two mile route through the Longleat Estate taking people through High Wood, into Horningsham, and back down Lodge Drive towards the House.

It is open to people of all ages and will be wheelchair friendly.  Entry costs £12 for adults and £6 for children in advance and includes a Santa suit and commemorative medal.  People can register on the day when the entry fee will be £14 and £7 respectively.

After the event, participants will be able to buy food and drink including a hog roast provided by The Bath Arms in Horningsham.

Please note that the last day for postal entries is Monday 30 November 2009.
