The Annual Festive McTaggart Trot starts at 9am at Barton Village Hall, a run that is all about the spirit of Christmas and giving back to those who need it most. So let's try and raise some much needed funds for St Teresa's Hospice.

It’s all very simple, here’s the event format:

You provide your name and the distance you wish to run (either 3.5, 7.5 or 11 miles)

  • You tell us your expected time for the distance you chose
  • You will be placed into a team of 3
  • You will set off in your team of 3, running at the slowest runners pace.
  • At the 3.5 mile point your first runner will stop….you must all be together!
  • The remaining two will increase the pace and run to the 7.5 mile point where your second runner will drop off. Again you must be together.
  • Your last runner will increase the pace again to the finish at the 11 mile point.
  • The course is an 11 mile loop

Abilities for each entrant is considered so teams are made fair as possible (to avoid 3 whippets in one team). Remember it’s not a race but a bit of fun to raise some cash for a worthy cause (although a bit of festive competitiveness is permitted ) Fancy dress is a must, Santa hats as a minimum!
