THE WEATHER

When you run in December, the weather can add to the challenge of the race!  Snow, rain, wind and sunshine - in previous years, we've experienced it all at the Holly Run!
Closer to the race date, do watch the weather forecast and plan to dress appropriately - and you can always come and warm up in Race HQ and enjoy the delights of our
cakes and drinks!

If adverse weather conditions are likely on race day, we will update you via this page as to the status of the race.

But do remember...this is cross country!
