The 2020 Lincoln Santa Fun Run

We are delighted to announce that for 2020 only we are running a very special virtual event – the 2020 Lincoln Colonia Santa Fun Run. We have only 1000 places available and anyone can register for a place. Regrettably we have taken the difficult decision to CANCEL our usual Lincoln Santa Fun Run for 2020. The safety of everyone who supports this annual event and our community is paramount. But we will be back with our full fun packed Lincoln Santa Fun Run in 2021.

2020 has been a challenging year for us all. We wanted to keep the Santa Fun Run event in some form not only because it is such an important part of Lincoln’s festive calendar but also to show our appreciation and support for NHS staff, Care Home staff and the many charities who have cared for those in our community in need during 2020.

Supporting those who care !

This year we have selected a number of local charities reflecting our special appreciation to those in our community who supported some of the most vulnerable during the Covid-19 pandemic. Unfortunately many of these charities have also seen dramatic loss of income in 2020 as so many fundraising activities have been cancelled. Click here to see our charity selection. All sponsorship money raised and any surplus from registration fees, after event costs, will be donated to these charities.

If you supported the 2019 Lincoln Santa Fun Run and Walk or the 2019 Lincoln Sausage Festival your support and generosity meant we were able to provide support during the pandemic to a number of critical local charities including The Lincoln Food Bank, The Lincoln Community Larder, EDAN Lincs (domestic abuse and womens refuge), YMCA Nomad Centre (for homeless).
