Do it for charity! Santa Run - Location Info
The Do it for Charity London Santa Run is held every year during the Christmas period in London's beautiful Victoria Park!
On the route you will pass carol singers, reindeer-costumed christmas folk, Santa's grotto and all sorts of festive fancies as you run around a lovely park for charity, raising money with every step you take!
Victoria Park is located just a few miles from central London. The park is the largest in Tower Hamlets at 86.18 hectares and has one of the highest visitor numbers of all the London parks with around 9 million visits per year.
In 2016 Victoria Park was successful in retaining its crown as the nation's favourite park, coming first place in the People's Choice Award for the third year in row - a "bobble-hat" trick!
