Will You Join the Lincoln Santa Fun Run & Walk?

The Lincoln Santa Fun Run is one of the longest running Santa Fun Runs in the UK, with 2023 marking its 18th consecutive year. Organised by registered charity The Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia, the unique backdrop of historic uphill Lincoln is undoubtedly one of the fundraising event’s great attractions.

2023’s fun run will feel slightly different, as with no Lincoln Christmas Market this year, it will be one of the key public festive community events in uphill Lincoln.

Taking place on Sunday 17th December, there will be 2000 places available this year forming a sea of red. Entrants can choose to run 1 lap (2km) or 2 laps (4km). Entry places were opened in August, so be sure to book your spot if you want to join in the fun.

Opened by the Mayor of Lincoln, the event is well-established in Lincoln’s festive calendar. As a fun run, the emphasis is on families, community, seasonal fun and of course raising plenty of cash for charity.

This year the event has amazing partner charities who will be organising teams to complete the run and raise funds to support their great work:

United Lincolnshire Hospitals Charity

Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance

Leap UK

Cash for Kids

St Barnabas Hospice


Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund

Edison’s Light

Umbrellas Lincoln

Lincoln City Foundation

Sophie’s Journey

Lincoln YMCA
