The Santa's Special is a staple race on the Striders calendar. The 4.3mile, 2 lap route, like the Kimmy Kanter, starts and finishes next to the Millmoor Juniors training ground and is predominantly run on trails through the surrounding woodland. Be warned though, it's not a flat course and as the race is run in early December, it's normally abit nippy and the trails are rarely dry!
The race is normally held on the last Sunday morning before Christmas, with the prize giving and chip butties available afterwards in the Green Dragon pub.
As with the Kimmy Kanter and the Canal Race, the Santa's Special race forms part of the 'KMR' series held in conjunction with Maltby Running Club and Rotherham Harriers.
Race day details available on the clubs Facebook page.
