Santa Clause is running to town


Staines Boat Club held its annual Santa Run on Saturday (15 December) – a fun run for rowers of all ages along the banks of the River Thames.

More than two dozen Staines BC members took part in the four-mile run, dressed head to toe in Santa costumes.


Starting at Staines Bridge, the participants followed a towpath along the Thames before finishing back at their clubhouse.

Sponsorship money raised by the annual run – now in its fourth year – will be put towards a building fund for a new Staines BC clubhouse.
