Operation Elf Run cleared for take-off before Christmas

Operation Elf Run has been cleared for take-off!

It’s all systems go at Elf HQ, as comms are open between the North Pole and Ben Elephant.

Ben needs as many elves as possible (of all ages) for a special mission at Coleraine’s Christie Park on Sunday, December 10.

Elves should report for duty at 10.45 a.m. to Coleraine Town Hall.

The dress code is as follows: elf costume, festive outfit or elf hat. Prizes for best costume.

Santa will inspect his elves at the finish line, where there will be festive refreshments.

There is no entry fee – just donations on the day for the RAF Benevolent Fund.


Meet at Coleraine Town Hall 10.45am.

Start at Old Bridge in Christie Park.

Run from there up to the car park at the Cutts and back, a distance of 2.6 miles.

Walk from Old Bridge along the path to the New Sandleford Bridge and back, 1.2 miles

Elf costume, festive costume, Christmas jumpers or hats.

Donations on the day in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund
