The 2020 event has been cancelled due to the national lockdown.
Autumn is one of the most enjoyable seasons to run as the temperatures start to cool down. The Santa Run at Stanwick Lakes is ideal for the recreational runner perhaps entering a run for the first time or the competitive runner looking to start their training for next year.
For those who have not run here before -it is the ideal running course with purpose built tracks and the additional feature of being on a nature reserve with stunning views and in the Autumn it is at its best!
There are three separate distances to choose from – 5K, 10K and Half Marathon

This Chip timed loop course gradually climbs out of Portree for the first 1.5 miles before a steep climb at Druimuie leading to a now fast downhill 2 miles to the Kensalyre turn. The race then follows a single track through spectacular Isle of Skye countryside including the Snizort river.
