Christmas is coming! Join us for our 5K chocolate themed fun run ‘Choco Charge’.

This fantastic fun-filled event is a great way to get you and your family in the festive spirit. The spirit of the event is 'taking part' not 'winning' so you can run, jog or walk – you decide. Plus, lots of other Christmas treats that will keep the family busy for hours. Kids under 15 go FREE, while adult tickets are available to purchase from our website for £20!

Stepping into the big red suit can be a lot more fun alongside a group of friends, colleagues or relatives! This is a sociable event - the more the merrier (ho ho ho)!
