25 September 2022

The Theatre Chipping Norton would like to announce the return of the Panto Fun Run! After last year’s huge success, we are going in for round two and we’d love you to help us raise funds for The Theatre.

Last year, ages ranged from young to old with everyone making a great effort with costumes. It was brilliant to watch James Bond, Robin Hood, and a family of Jesters running through Chipping Norton on a Sunday - what will this year bring?

We really hope to raise £5000 and would love to you to get involved in helping us do this. Not only do we want to raise money for our beloved Theatre, we want to highlight the importance of exercise, encouraging health and wellbeing, both mentally and physically.

Here are some details below:

  • Sunday 25th September, race starts at 10am, but you can arrive from 9:15am onwards. 
  • Approx 5k run or walk starting at the Theatre and ending in the Recreational Park Ground.
  • Run or walk it's up to you! Or join us in the rec ground for a party at the finish line. Dogs are welcome!
  • There will be refreshments and entertainment at the finish in the Recreational Ground, so we encourage everyone to come down and support our cause, even if they are not entering.
  • The route is across fields and public footpaths, avoiding roads whenever possible.
  • Any road crossing, will be heavily marshalled.
  • Click here to read our full Terms & Conditions.


If you'd like to be sponsored to participate click here to set up a sponsorship fundraising page via JustGiving. We are also offering sponsorship forms to all participants upon entry so you can help to fundraise.

We will be offering prizes including best costume and the participant who comes in first.
