Lanark Loch festive fun run

Lanark Loch festive fun run

Join us for our second Santa dash around Lanark Loch on Sunday 5 December!

The event is geared towards all ages and abilities. The route is a simple circuit of the loch…a nice, very flat route. You can choose to go around as many times as you wish.

We welcome runners, joggers and walkers…all ages and pets too!

Entry fees include a Santa costume (details below), a participation medal and a festive snack.

We start at the top car park of Lanark Loch at 10:30am. 

To help keep numbers at a comfortable level, we will set off in waves (runners starting the wave first, with walkers to the rear).

After completing your laps you’ll return to the top car park where you collect your medal and enjoy a festive beverage or snack.

A perfect kick start to the festive season!

To help keep queuing to a minimum, costume collection will be available at Lanark Lifestyles for those who can make it before the day. Details for this will be published on our Facebook event page. For those who are travelling from further afield, you will be able to collect from 10:30am at the gazebo in the top car park at Lanark Loch.
