Santas Little Helpers 2021

We have moved HQ. Our new venue is the fabulous Pengethley Manor in Peterstow, Ross-on-Wye.

As we wont be organising events at Pengethley until late 2022, this years Santa’s Little Helpers medals are only available through a Virtual entry.

Also available – Twelve Days of Christmas.


The Run: Santa’s Little Helpers 2021.

The Medals: If you like Christmas and unique medals, may we introduce you to the first three medals in our series ‘Santa’s Little Helpers’? We will be adding three more to the collection each year. For 2021 we have the Green Elf for the Marathon, the Reindeer for the Half Marathon and good old Santa himself for the 5k & 10k runs.

Important Note: Medals are very limited supply this year, so once they’ve gone you will have to wait until 2022 to get hold of one. So if you want one – get signed up!

These medals sizes are approximately as follows:

  • The Santa 10km or 5km medals – 50 mm
  • The Bushy Evergreen Half Marathon medal – 75 mm
  • The Rudolph Marathon Medal – 100 mm

A little bit about the characters:

Elf – Bushy Evergreen
A skilled engineer and the inventor of Santa’s magic toy-making machine. Bushy came from a family that lived in the forest way up North. Like most forest creatures, Bushy became skilled in the art of woodcarving at an early age.

By the time he was a boy of 103, he had carved millions of wooden trains, cars, dinosaurs and other toys. Bushy is now the head Toy Maker for Santa and keeps on developing his famous toy making machine to meet children’s endless demand for new toys.

Reindeer -Rudolph
When the fog came down and made flying the sleigh a little tricky, Santa asked Rudolph to guide the sleigh with his shiny nose. A real TEAM player.

Santa Claus
The one and only – surely no explanation required?

Fancy Dress is encouraged and an award will be given for our chosen best effort.
