Festive Fun Run raising money for the Firefighters Charity

Buxted Park Reindeer Run saw its biggest and muddiest event this year with 400 runners taking part.

The children’s 1K event saw some incredible festive fancy dress with Santa’s, reindeer, elves and even Elsa’s crossing the finish line for their glittering medals given out by Uckfield Green watch firefighters.

The 5k recorded its quickest time ever of 21 minutes by Robert Walton and the 10k was equally impressive with Ben Stock coming home in 42 minutes. The fancy dress theme was fully supported this year with some fantastic outfits including a Christmas pudding!

Buxted Park Reindeer Run organisers would like to publicly thank the following for their donations and contributions:

McDonald’s Uckfield, Tesco Uckfield, Waitrose Uckfield, Morrison’s Crowborough, Emma Naylor Fitness, Phillips AV, Maresfield Dynamos JFC, T.A.P. Cleaning, Stepping Stones Preschool, Buxted Park Sports Club, Buxted Primary School and the Reindeer Run friends and family.

This year’s event has raised an outstanding £4000 for The Firefighters Charity.
