Chase The Turkey

Sunday 2nd December

Run, jog or walk the 2 mile route around The Helix Park this December. And yes, you will be in hot pursuit of a turkey (or someone dressed as a turkey)! Our turkeys will keep your pace so you can complete the route in your ideal time. The run will be chip timed this year.

Prizes are up for grabs and all finishers get a fab t-shirt to take home as well as a hot drinks voucher to exchange in the visitor centre as a well earned treat once you've completed your run. 

Everyone is Welcome to join in - all ages and abilities and feel free to stroll if you don't want to trot!  The run is accessible for all and we welcome everyone to join in the fun.

Sunday 2nd December race starts 11am at the Visitor Centre at The Helix

Cost: £8 children and £10 for adults, family ticket £30 (2 adults + 2 kids or 1 adult + 3 kids)
