Christmas Cracker - 2020

08/09/2020

Weston Christmas Cracker 2020


Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all runners, marshals and spectators is our first priority when organising any of our events. With the ongoing challenges of the Pandemic, simply cancelling the event is an easy option for us but has serious implications for our main race charity, Weston Hospicecare. Additionally we know how much local runners and those from further afield look forward to competing in this festive favourite race and like the motivation of having an event to prepare for, especially in the winter months.


For these reasons we have decided that the Christmas Cracker 2020 will be a virtual fun race which you can all enjoy and look forward to. It will also provide much needed help to our race charity, Weston Hospicecare, which does an incredible job, like all the hospices around the country. All profits from the 2020 virtual event will go to Weston Hospicecare.


So here is your opportunity to appear on a Christmas Cracker Virtual Race Results page where you can compare your times against your friends and family.
