The Tap House will have food and drink available for sale before, during and after the Stride. Please support them as they have very kindly let us host the event there.

Please pin your number to the front of your Santa Suit. You will need to bring 4 safety pins with you. The numbers are different for the night and day stride. Please only wear one number at a time! There is a different festive medal for each stride.

You will only be gven a medal if you are wearing a number!
