If you’re after something a little bit different this Christmas, why not take part in the Santa Fun Run this Christmas time in Lincoln? Over 2000 people will get a free Santa Suit and finishing medal when they run, jog, walk, or even wheel themselves over a 3.5k route starting and finishing in the picturesque Castle Square. It’s on December 14th, and is a gerat excuse to get training and maybe mitigate some of those festive treats!
It’s still Christmas, though, so after your run make sure you keep your energy up with a slap-up three course meal at the Reform restaurant at the Castle Hotel!
