It is important to us to keep everyone participating in the Lincoln Santa Fun Run safe. All entrants and spectators MUST adhere to any National or Local government requirements and guidance applicable on the day of the event. We also ask that all entrants adhere to the following COVID 19 guidance for the event and respect their fellow runners, volunteers and staff at the event.

All runners (or parent/guardian of children taking part) must undertake a self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms. Do not travel to the event if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 currently recognised as any of the following:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Should you report or demonstrate any such symptoms, you must follow NHS and PHE guidance.

Lateral flow test

  • We want to keep everyone as safe as possible and reassure all participants by requesting everyone takes added precautions, therefore where possible we would encourage people to take a Lateral Flow Test on Saturday or Sunday prior to coming to the event.
  • You can obtain lateral flow tests for free from your local Pharmacy.
  • Anyone testing positive should not attend the event and follow government guidance.

Face Coverings 

  • Whilst these are not mandatory we would encourage all entrants to consider wearing a face covering pre and post-race, this includes in the waiting area in Westgate prior to starting the event.

Social Distancing

  • Please where possible observe social distancing and be respectful of both other entrants and volunteers throughout the event. We will have a 3 pen system at the start for safety reasons and to assist in social distancing.

Come Ready to Run

  • Minimise your interaction with staff, volunteers and participants by being as self-sufficient as possible dressed in santa suit and please bring your own hand sanitiser

Thankyou – let’s keep everyone safe and protect our NHS
