 Jolly Running returns to Escot for its popular series of Christmas races for the weekend of December 11 and 12. 

The ‘Extremely Jolly’ race on Saturday is one of Jolly Running’s most popular events. The 7.5 mile course offers a variety of trails, mud, woodland tracks, paths, streams, quaint bridges, fields and a few water crossings and a 30-metre waterslide at the end of the course. 

Also on Saturday is a fun event for younger runners. The ‘Little Elves’ 1 mile fun run is for children over 8 years of age. 

Upping the game on Sunday for runners wanting to clock up a greater distance, the Escot Christmas Marathon and Half Marathon comprise laps around the Estate.  

As well as providing enjoyable races, Jolly Running also has a more serious aim, raising funds for charity.
