Over 300 people took part in Lindsey Lodge Hospice’s first ever Elf Yourself Run on Sunday 2 December at Central Park in Scunthorpe.
The sell-out event saw runners taking a short 2.5km course, visiting elf stations to pick up hats and ears, as well as getting their own elf name and being snapped in an ‘Elfie Selfie. So by the time they reached the finish line there were hundreds of Christmas elves circulating around the park.
Lindsey Lodge Hospice Chief Executive Karen Griffiths said: “I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came along to support us, there really was a fantastic festive feeling at the finish line!
“This was a new event for us and we’re delighted so many people signed up and liked the concept.
She added: “We’d like to thank North Lincolnshire Council for allowing us to use Central Park as the location for our event, and our lead sponsor Ongo, whose team also did a sterling job helping out on the day.
“She added: “We also received sponsorship from Brigg Office Supplies, Forest Pines, R Wallace Funeral Directors, SMT Volvo Construction, Symes Bains Broomer and Oldrids, so we’re now planning next year’s event, which we hope will be even bigger and better than ever!”
