Just a matter of hours remain for anyone looking to register online for next month’s Santa Dash. Organised by BTR Liverpool, the Santa Dash has become a popular mainstay on the Merseyside festive calendar with the event locking horns (or antlers) with Las Vegas for the World Santa Challenge title.
Scheduled for Sunday 3 December, the Santa Dash will see Merseyside transformed into a sea of red and blue santas as they congregate at Pier Head and make their way over a 5k course that moves through the city centre before a grandstand finish outside Liverpool Town Hall.
The 5k is an all-inclusive affair and walkers, hoppers, skippers and four-legged friends are invited to take part. Staged alongside the Santa Dash is the popular 1K Mini Dash – ideal for the whole family.
In recent weeks, Claire House Children’s Hospice was confirmed as the event’s charity partner. A recent post on BTR Liverpool’s Facebook page encouraged participants to donate as race day approaches: “Calling all Santa Dashers - can we help this very worthwhile cause reach their £20,000 fundraising target? All it would take is for every Dasher to raise or donate just £2! Help Claire House to reach every child who needs their support this Christmas.”
Entries for the 2017 BTR Liverpool Santa Dash closes at midday today (17 November). Thereafter, registration will be taken only in person at BTR’s office at Market Street or St. Johns Centre in Liverpool.
