Kent Sport Christmas on campus

Christmas themed classes – Monday 6 December 

Join Jeni and the team for an afternoon of festive-themed Christmas classes, including Santa’s Spin Surprise and 12 Days of Boxfit. Costumes optional! Keep an eye on social media channels UniKentSport where details of all the classes will be shared soon. Classes are free for Premium Plus and Premium members. Make sure you book a space on the class through your online account.

Santa Run – Tuesday 7 December

What better way to get in the festive spirit than a gentle 5k run around the Canterbury campus, following Santa on his sleigh? Join our popular Santa Run, starting at the Plaza at 1pm. Festive outfits encouraged, and the first 100 finishers will earn themselves a shiny (chocolate) medal. When you cross the finish line, head up to The Pavilion Café Bar for a nice (free) warming cup of hot choc, a mince pie and Christmas music! We’ll then announce the winners of the best dressed competition.

You can sign up to the event here on the Gulbenkian website

Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 10 December

Throw on your best (or worst!) Christmas jumper and join Kent Sport staff as we raise funds for Save the Children. A donation box will be set up at main reception at the Sports Centre.  

Closing dates

We’ll be signing off for the year on Wednesday 22 December, meaning all Kent Sport facilities will be closed from this date. We’ll be reopening on Tuesday 4 January.
