Note: Due to urgent RL events, we’re moving the dash to
10.30AM SLT on Saturday the 22nd of December.
A little post-solstice, but all that running should help you warm up for the day’s events around town.
For the third year running, we celebrate the winter solstice with a chilling dash from the Turkish Bath in Babbage Square to the Sauna at Brunel Hall. Those willing to brave the winter chill should gather in the hotrooms with their bathing dress and sturdy shoes! The runners will then make their way across Square and Academy to the welcome heat of the Brunel Hall sauna. The establishment takes no responsibility for accidental canal trips or snowballs to the neck experienced during the race.
To the victors, the Victor! Following the race, surviving runners can revive themselves in the sauna and pool at Brunel Hall where Victor will warm us up with an hour of winter tunes. Come and see off the winter chill, and warm up for the day’s festivities in New Babbage.
