Organiser's Description

After the success of last 3 years of The Christmas Day Cracker Run, join us for our fourth Christmas Day run! If you prefer to put on a pair of trainers rather than open presents, drink and eat Christmas dinner, then this event is for you!   

We welcome runners of all abilities and you are allowed to run or walk the course.

Compulsory Kit: If you wish to run before 7:30am, you will need to use a headtorch for the first hour of the event.

Address: Wraysbury Skiff & Punting Club, Wraysbury Skiff and Punting Club, Riverside, Egham

Course: The course is along a beautiful stretch of the River Thames. It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required. The minimum distance is 5km.

Medals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive one of our fantastic themed medals!

Distance & Time: This is a 7 hour Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a lap. A full lap is 4.37 miles (7km) and you can run as many or as few of these laps as you wish in the 7 hour time limit which starts from the official event start time. It is 3 laps for a half marathon, 6 for a marathon and 7 or over for an ultra, we also have a 50km distance available.

Medals & Pins: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic medal. We also have distance pins available for anyone who runs a half-marathon distance or more. Pins available to collect are our Half-Marathon, Mega-Half, Marathon, 50km and Ultra pins. You will receive one pin on the ribbon of your medal to reflect your achievement.

Goody Bag: Absolutely! You have earned these replacement calories after all, so all our finishers get a great goody bag. You will have a selection of goodies to choose from. As well as our standard goody bag, we have a vegan goody bag too. Please remember to let us know if you are vegan or if you prefer a vegan goody bag when you enter and we can have this ready for you.

Christmas Present: We can't have you leaving without a gift from Santa's stocking!

Christmas Dinner Aid Table:  It's a full Christmas Dinner aid table, with roast potatoes, parsnips, sprouts, roast ham and a nut roast for our vegan friends. With mince pies and a little tipple of something also available, its Christmas Day with running built around it!

Special Event: If our event is a special event for you, for instance your 50th, 99th, 100th, 150th, 200th, 250th etc. marathon or half marathon then please let us know. We will provide you with a great number with your name and the event date on it. Also, if it is your birthday, again let us know and we will get you a special number for your birthday!

Toilet & Changing Facilities: Toilets are available at the start / finish area inside the venue HQ. There are changing facilities inside the venue.

Parking: There is a large public car park available for you to use. It has a Parking Eye set up, so please ensure you remember to pay when you leave.

Other Info: There will be somewhere to leave a bag at the start / finish area. However, this is not a secure bag and the items cannot be watched at all times so please do not leave anything valuable.

Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out. The minimum age is 12 years old. If you would like to run with someone under 12 years of age, please contact us directly. We have two events running at the same time. The main event is a UKA Permitted event and is for all runners aged 18 or over. In addition, we have a non-UKA event for runners under the age of 18. Runners under the age of 18 will automatically be included in the non-UKA start list and this event will start 1 minute after the main event.

Headphones are allowed.

Our running events are held on public footpaths so we would be grateful if all runners were considerate of other path users.
