Wigan's Christmas Dash is here, a fun run for all ages** and abilities, taking place in Mesnes Park.
The Dash route is 5 laps of a 1k Loop (5k in total) taking you round the
fantastic scenery of Mesnes Park. The start will be next to the famous
statue of Sir Francis Sharp Powell which, at the time, was only the second
statue built of a living person. It was unveiled in 1910 and Sir Francis
Sharp Powell attended the unveiling.
So put on your Santa suit and get ready to fill the park with running
Santas, whilst listening to Christmas music provided by Wish FM.
All entrants will receive a Santa suit to run in, and a turkey sandwich, mince pie and mulled wine or water at the finish, and all are included
within your entry fee!
