Santa's Fun Run & Family Walk

Santa has taken up temporary residence at Harestanes this Winter due to some 'technical issues' with his sleigh and he's starting to get a little bit lonely without all of his friends and family in Lapland!

Join us for our Santa Fun Run which is just over 5k in distance through the scenic Christmas views and roughages of Harestanes.

We know not everyone is as energetic as our little hare friend, so we've got a family-friendly shorter walk on offer too, which is 1.5k.
