Do it for charity! Santa Run - What's it like?
The Do it for Charity Santa Run is now into its 9th year and is London’s largest Santa run. In 2017 the run will take place on Sunday 3rd December and over 4,000 Santas are expected to take part!
All you need to do to take part is raise £100 for your favourite charity and pay a £25 registration fee – in return you will receive ALL of the following:
Free Santa Costume! That’s right – no need to make your own or grow a white beard! Our deluxe 5 piece santa costumes are given to all runners free of charge including a red cloak, matching trousers, jaunty bobble had, a belt and that all important beard!
Or bring your own costume! We welcome Elves, Reindeer, Snowmen, Christmas Bunnies, Presents... in fact anything with a Christmas theme! There will be prizes for the best costume on the day for adults, children and pets(!) so make sure you are creative and dress to impress!
5km and 10km route: Tell us in advance or decide on the day (depending on how ‘festive’ your celebrations were the night before!). Once round the route for 5km or twice round for 10km – all Santas can easily remember that!
Festive Fun: Look out for our Carol singers, Christmas-themed characters and FREE mince pies!
Mini Santa Run: Our Mini Santa Run will take place just before the main event. It’s completely free of charge and open to all children under the age of 8.
Pre-event support: Just call our friendly Santa Run team who will be able to help you out with all of your pre-event questions including fundraising and training advice.
Highly popular event Facebook page: Meet fellow Santas ahead of the run and if you’re on your own you will probably find other solo runners to run and train with! Our Santa Run Facebook page is a great place to share lots of tips and advice on the run and get to know each other ahead of the big day!.
You will be rewarded with an official, beautiful souvenir of your achievement, the coveted:
"Do it for Charity Santa Run" Medal!
For you to treasure and remember your wonderful day by!
