Run the Campus with a new series of UniRun events!

About our UniRun

Walk, run or jog at your own pace with like-minded movers from across the University community. Our UniRun events are designed to bring together staff or student runners of all abilities with a variety of course lengths including a 2.5k/3k and 5k, on Campus route based at the Canterbury North Holmes site.

Next Event

The Next UniRun event is our Santa Dash and will take place Wednesday 11th December at 12:30pm, meeting on Maxwell Davies at the North Holmes Road campus.

UniRun, Santa Dash!

Christmas has come early this year with our Santa themed UniRun. Get into the festive spirit with a festive sprint!

Sign up today and walk, jog, skip or run your way around our 2.5k course, in a free Santa hat! UniRun Santa Dash is an event for everyone, complete the course with fellow colleagues or friends. 

The course will take no more than 15-20 minutes if jogging or running, but there is no pressure to finish in a certain time.

In Memory of Wim

This year’s Santa Dash event is in memory of Dr Wim Van Vuuren, a fellow colleague and avid Runner at Canterbury Christ Church University. Wim sadly passed away at the end of October. Dr Wim van Vuuren, was a Principal Lecturer in Christ Church Business School.

We would like to celebrate Wim’s life by encouraging you all to wear orange during the Uni Run event, a significant cultural colour in Wim's native Netherlands.

On the day you will have an opportunity to make a donation; all donations will be forwarded to Wim & Gemma’s son Max who is running a half marathon in the new year for the Make a Wish Foundation in Wim's memory.
