A club only race held at Linacre Woods usually one morning between Christmas Day and New Years Day. Everyone is asked to bring a Christmas present, suitably wrapped, which go into Santa's sack then after the race each runner picks a present.
The course is 2 laps of the first and second reservoirs which is just over 4 miles. All runners are given a handicap time with the slowest runner going off first at 11am. Post race drinks are held at the Three Merry Lads on Cutthorpe Road.
