A Christmas fancy dress, family fun run around the quaint village of Wray will take place this weekend to raise vital funds for children’s charity UNICEF.

Organiser Claire Stevenson hopes to raise £2000 for the children’s charity to go towards her journey of running the London Marathon next April.

The ‘Wrayndeer Rush and Pie Push’ will take place on Sunday December 6 at the Wray Village Institute and includes a contest to eat three mince pies in record time. If any contestant can do this in 46 seconds or less they could get into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Claire has been fundraising by taking part in‘7 Races and 70 Miles dressed as a Supervillain’ for UNICEF UK.

She will also be holding ‘Wrayve On’ - a charity auction and 80s/90s music night on Saturday January 30 to blow away the post-Christmas blues.

There will be hot turkey sandwiches at the Christmas event, and cocoa available, plus craft stalls and games.

The race starts at 1pm with registration from 12pm and costs £5 runner/ £13 for family of up to 4/ and £3 for the pie push. There’ll be a bespoke Wrayndeer medal for every runner plus a mince pie and hot drink included.

All proceeds will go to the children’s charity UNICEF UK.
