Haven House is encouraging the public to have fun and get fit in the run up to Christmas with its Chasing Elves 10k at Hainault Forest Country Park on Sunday 10 December in partnership with The Only Way Is Crossfit and SV Sports Therapy.

The event starts at 10am and entry will include an elf hat, medal, refreshments and the route will be officially chip timed.

Participants can run, jog or walk their way through a specially designed festive course in order to raise funds for the hospice.

Katie Tyler, Events Fundraising Manager at Haven House, said: “Starting and finishing at Hainault Forest Country Park, Chasing Elves promises to be an exciting Christmas themed challenge that is open to all, from beginners to experienced runners.

“Whether it's your first-ever race or you're aiming for a final personal best of 2017, grab an elf hat and your trainers, and help raise funds for local life-limited children and their families.

“The route is multi-terrain through the forest, with some uneven ground. It is a mainly flat course with a few slopes and plenty of beautiful scenery.”

The Chasing Elves 10k is open to all abilities aged over 15 years old.

Registration Fee is £15 and we encourage participants to aim to raise £50 per person in sponsorship. Please be aware that the registration fee only covers the cost of running the event so we do rely on sponsorship to help support our vital work.
