Come and stride into Christmas for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance!


Come and stride into Christmas for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance! Sunday December 11th, and registration is now open.

Preparations are well under way for the hugely popular annual Santa Stride organised by Sturminster Newton Rotary

Sturminster Newton Santa Stride is the brilliant fun community event in which all participants put on Santa Suits and set off to run, walk (or just stroll!) along the Trailway from the Sturminster Newton car park to Shillingstone – or just as far as you like, as there are marked and marshalled turnaround points at regular intervals along the way.

Despite rising costs and to avoid adding to the ever-increasing cost of living, the entry fee (which includes your Santa Suit) remains unchanged. Adults are £5 each, Children aged six to 12 years old are £2.50 and under sixes go free. In addition every person registered receives free entry into a prize draw, and will receive a commemorative medal.

This pre-Christmas fun event raises money through sponsorship and donations for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

For more information and FAQ’s, or to register please go to .

You will also be able to register on the day at the desk on the forecourt of The Original Factory Shop Sturminster Newton or at one of the Santa Stride pop-up shops in the The Exchange, Sturminster Newton on Saturday November 12th, 19th, 26th and December 3rd.

So please, come along and join the Jolly Jogging Santas on Sunday December 11th, we look forward to seeing you there!
