Join us for a delightful seasonal dash through the beautiful forest at Cannock Chase. You will take to the trail and wind your way through the trees, celebrating the great outdoors and the arrival of the festive season in one, perfect event. Don't forget, seasonal fancy dress is most welcome! Get those Santa hats at the ready, folks! The course takes place mainly on hard track and forest trail. If the weather has been inclement, then the ground will likely be muddy. The course is gently undulating but with a Christmas gift of 167' climb at 3 & 8km. You'll enjoy looping around the lakes. The 5km is one lap and the 10k is at two laps. The start area is a wide, open space - perfect for spectators who want to cheer on friends and family! Also new to 2023, is a new out and back Junior Fun Run of 1.2km - fancy dress is optional but very much encouraged! We hope that you will join us in welcoming our aspiring racers to the start line!

This event is part of Cannock Chase Forest Christmas.
