Is anyone taking part in a festive run...?

I have got two of these. 10th Dec - Christmas Pudding Run (10 mile) and 17th Dec - Turkey Trot (5 mile)

Now looking for anything to do with gravy and veggies, to complete a Christmas lunch.
These light hearted races look loads of fun, with runners dressing up in tinsel, santa outfits, etc.

'Go on it's Christmas', have some fun.....:d

I'm probably going to have a go at the "Boxing Day Run", it's a nice little 3.2 mile cross country across some fields in Pirton, Hertfordshire. Sponsored by a local brewery they have their own beer brewed for specially for the race which is the momento.

I'm going to do the long run from the top of Courchevel to the bar at the bottom :embarrassed:)

(If I'd been staying at home in South West London I would have raced BPTT 5km, then swum in the open air pool at Hampton... what a shame I won't be home - I will have to do that on New Year's Day instead!)

I've got a 10km run on 3rd December and another on the 13th January. This should make me keep training over Crimbo and not turn into a drunken slob. After 2nd 10km, I'm starting training for my first half marathon.

For me it's the 'Travellers 6' at Denby Dale on 17/12 then nothing on the books until the Meltham 10K 28/1/07.... and between times it's gonna be a very festive Christmas in the Dales and goodness knows what might happen when I get north of the border for Hogmanay!!!
Cheers!

I think I'm going to enter our local Christmas fun run, just a gentle 5k on Boxing day should help shift the Christmas dinner :lol:

I didn't even notice!
Ah well - seeing as we're posting on here anyways - I'm doing a run Xmas morning - its a local one not advertised but joining some other club members and doing a shortish one followed by an ickle pub visit :d

Rumours are as well our club does a Christmas run where the ladies run one direction - the men run another and do a loop back towards each other and then when they meet - they go to the nearest pub.... I say the ladies just trot to the nearest pub and wait!! :lol:
