CAFOD (the Catholic aid agency for England and Wales) has teamed up with Innovation Sports to bring you the London Nativity Run. 2011 will be the inaugural staging of this festive event and organisers are looking forward to welcoming runners with a great course, mince pies and mulled wine.
Taking place at Clapham Common on Saturday, December 17 this is a fantastic fun run for those looking for something different to the usual Santa Dashes or Pudding Plods. Those taking part can choose to walk or run the 5km course dressed as a character from the Nativity story (get those thinking caps on). After crossing the finish line you can relax with a free mince pie and glass of warm winter Pimms at The Windmill.
Organisers are asking entrants to get creative with their costumes, as there will be prizes for the best on the day. Perhaps a little (or large) angel or a wise man (or woman)? Do you have a spare tea towel? Do you look like the back end of donkey?
Entry is £10 for adults and £5 for children, and organisers ask that entrants endeavour to raise £30 plus through sponsorship. This small amount can make a big difference through the charity's work around the world.
