The Turkey & Tinsel Trot

Portchester, Fareham, Hampshire

Organiser's Description

Kick off the Christmas celebrations with this festive event at Portchester Castle - a multi lap trail race, taking in views across Fareham Creek and the upper reaches of Portsmouth Harbour. Run as many laps as you can, collecting festive treats as you go, or enter as a team of up to 6. Completing 12 laps will be approximately a marathon distance. Fancy dress is encouraged but we would ask that you do not wear Santa suits, as this is not a Santa run! Every runner will get an awesome Christmas themed medal.
