Santa Run at Sudeley Castle
This event was held on Sunday 15th December 2019 and included a 1 lap 8k, a 1 lap 5k (approx.) plus an all ages and abilities 1k and a free 5 years and under 50m dash. For 2019, this was also a festive dress event only. Located in the heart of the Cotswolds, Sudeley Castle & Gardens has played an important role in England’s history for over 1,000 years. The castle is surrounded by breath taking, 1,200 acre estate with a backdrop of rolling Cotswold Hills, green fields and woodland breaks making the vast Sudeley Estate the perfect venue for a Santa Run even if it was very wet and muddy.
Representing RSE in the 8k event was Sandie Wood who finished in a time of 1:10:22 and came 4th in her age category. She was followed by:
Felicity Crotty – 1:13:06
Tracey Webster – 1:15:51
