Santa Run

Santa 5k/10k Run 2017

Over 4,000 runners are expected to take part in this 5K/10K fun run through Victoria Park and the essence of this event is all about having fun. So whether you run, jog or walk the route, it’s all about taking part. The run is open to Santa’s little helpers from age 8 upwards, making it a great family run. Better still, Santa costumes are provided!




“I have taken part in lots of runs for The Maypole Project, one of the best and most festive is the Santa Run in December. Everybody doing the run had to do it dressed as Santa, the atmosphere was amazing and as we were all running, all you could see was a bunch of red dots moving across the park!”
