The Rotary Club of Skegness

This year’s annual Skegness Santa Fun Run, organised by the Rotary Club of Skegness took place on Sunday 13th December 2015 starting from the Lifeboat Station on the seafront at Tower Esplanade.

Over 275 Santa suited entrants set off at 10.30am around the Foreshore course of approximately 5km, with the usual mixture of keen runners, family runners and walkers and even the occasional pet leading the way up and down the Parades and seafront. The Skegness Academy and Richmond School both took part with organised teams, and the instructors from Fresh Fitness Gym, who along with East Kirkby Refrigeration sponsored the event, were on hand to lead the warm-up before the starters horn was sounded by the Mayor, Coun. Carl Macey and a red sea of Santas headed off towards the Clock Tower.

County Linx Radio were on hand with their CLUB bus, and the Jolly Fisherman put in an appearance as the Mayor handed out course medals to all the finishers as they crossed the line. The Fun Run is an annual community event which raises significant funds for the Air Ambulance and other local charities and is made possible by all those who took part or helped in any way, either by permissions, advertising, promotion, sponsorship of the event, or just time given on the day by volunteers.

Any further sponsorship monies raised by by entrants can be paid to the Rotary Club of Skegness via the Fun Run Secretary, 45 Seacroft Drive, Skegness PE25 3AP
