It’s that time of year again when Merseyside begins to gear up for its Christmas extravaganza, the Santa Dash. The BTR Liverpool organised event is the UK’s largest festive event, drawing up to 8,000 runners to the North West on a day which transforms the region into a sea of red and blue Scouse santas.
This year’s run has a confirmed date of Sunday 2 December and will once again include a 1K Mini Dash. The 5K starts at Liverpool's Pier Head at 9.30am, while the 1K Mini Dash for under 12s starts in Castle Street near Liverpool Town Hall at approximately 11am once all the 5K participants have finished.
Throughout the event’s history, which traces back to 2004, it has proven to be an invaluable source of fundraising for numerous charities. Last year, for example, saw a team of 120 festive fun runners raise an incredible £15,000 for Claire House Children’s Hospice.
With the spirit of good will at its core, plus fantastic support throughout the course, this a festive event not to be missed.As ever, BTR Liverpool will be on hand to provide Santa suits for all those taking part.
Registration for the Santa Dash is now open and available here.
