Santa Fun Run & Santa Cycle Ride

Thank you to EVERYONE who took part in the KEMP Hospice Santa Fun Run & Santa Cycle ride 2018 making it our biggest year ever.

YOU WERE AMAZING!

The annual 10k, 5k & 1k fun-runs returned to Brinton Park in Kidderminster on Sunday December 2nd and this year it was a record breaker. Last year saw 500 Santa's take part, raising thousands and thousands of pounds for KEMP Hospice...

This year, you amazing people managed to SMASH that record with 565 people taking part in the runs and the brand new KEMP Santa Cycle Ride.

We really can't thank you all enough. Taking part in our events makes such a huge difference to people's lives right here in the Wyre Forest community. You are all #KEMPheroes.

RETURN YOUR SPONSORSHIP

Now is the time to gather together your sponsorship money and return it to KEMP Hospice.

Every £ that is raised will go towards allowing KEMP Hospice to care and support for people who are dealing with life-limiting illness and bereavement right here in the Wyre Forest district.

 

You can return your sponsorship monies to: KEMP Santa Fun Run, KEMP Hospice, 41 Mason Road, Kidderminster, DY11 6AG or you can call in to KEMP and drop it off in person (we'd love to see you and say thank you!).

THE STORY SO FAR

While runners signed up and gained sponsorship to put their best foot forward (taking part in either the 10k run, the Family 5k run or the 1k Santa Dash for the little ones), this year the Santa Fun Runers were joined by Santa Cycle Riders who also raised money as their put their tyres to the tarmac on Sunday December 2nd too. 

The KEMP Santa Cycle Ride saw cyclists saddle up and 'pedal for a medal' across the Wyre Forest, taking in 25-mile route starting at Brinton's Park and cycling through Kidderminster, Stourport and Bewdley. It was was brilliantly put together by Nigel "Budgie" Barter from West Merica Police in Kidderminster.

Nigel now has plans for more cycling events in 2019 in aid of KEMP including KEMP's Ride The Wyre sportive (watch this space.

One person went the extra mile this year for KEMP Hospice (or should that be the extra 96 miles!) as Kidderminster superhero Shaun Marshall ran a staggering 24 hour non-stop Super Santa Fun Run - clocking up an incredible 101 miles and raising money as he went. You can still donate to Shaun's incredible achievement by going to www.justgiving.com/shaun-marshall12.

We'll be posting official 10K times here soon (with thanks to Kidderminster & Stourport Athletic Club) AND keep an eye out because we'll soon be opening up registration for NEXT YEAR'S event - as KEMP celebrates it's 50th anniversary in 2019.

If you'd like to take part in the 2019 KEMP Santa Gold Run you can email to register your interest to take part right here.
