Join us for the Winter Solstice Saunter 2023, a 10k or 5k head torch evening run through the St. Ives estate Bingley on the shortest day to help raise vital funds for Sue Ryder's expert care.

Take a run on the shortest day

The Winter Solstice Strider is a sister event to our popular 5 mile Summer Solstice Saunter. 

This event takes place on the Winter Solstice on 21st December 2023 and is a head torch dark run of either 10k or 5k. The run starts at the Sports Turf Research Institute and winds through the woods (and fittingly past Druids Altar) within the St. Ives Estate at Bingley. 

As usual with our solstice events, all participants will receive a fantastic bespoke medal this year.  The event is supported, sponsored by our hosts at the STRI and the St. Ives Golf Club who provide a large proportion of the free parking that is provided for participants. 

Take part in person or virtually

Whilst we anticipate that most participants will come to the St. Ives Estate to take part, virtual entry (where participants run a 10k or 5k route of their own choice on the shortest day) is also available.

Virtual runners are sent their bespoke medal in advance to wear with pride after their own saunter.
