Our Extremely Jolly Little Elves run is the Fun Run to our Extremely Jolly Event so that everyone can experience our waterslide!!

Organised specifically to include your children and those of you wanting to experience the slide on a shorter distance in the festivities.

This is perfect for children to burn off some of that pre-Christmas excitement. They can experience a little taste of what the adults encounter on the Extremely Jolly.

 The route is on some of the paths, trails and fields around Escot. The waterslide is purely for fun, it’s not compulsory that you experience it. You will get wet so a change of clothes is strongly recommended for afterwards.

Our Little Elves run is taking place before the adults Extremely Jolly main race on Saturday 9th December 2023 at 10am.

Adults can enter with their children or solo as a pre-Extremely Jolly warm up.

All participants need an entry.

Fancy Dress is highly encouraged as it adds to the festive spirit of the event.

As this is a fun run there will be no place prizes, timings or published results.

There will be a bespoke medal for every finisher.

Due to the waterslide element the minimum age requirement for the Little Elves run is 8+ years. Sorry this is purely due to insurance and the risk assessment as I need to keep you safe.
