It’s time to dust off your jingle bells and register for this year’s Lancaster Santa Dash! in aid of local charity CancerCare. Now in its fifth year, the charity’s fundraising Santa Dash and Reindeer Run is on Sunday November 24, as part of a day of activities to celebrate the switch on of the city’s Christmas lights.
Each year, hundreds of Santas join the fun and dash around the city centre in aid of local cancer support charity CancerCare. The entrance fee (Adults £6, Children £3, under 5’s free) includes a Santa suit for the adults and reindeer antlers for the under 11s.
The dash itself starts at 1pm – with a fun warm-up led by Ludus Dance for the massed Santas in Market Square at 12.45pm. Whether you run, walk, jog, dance, prance or jingle all the way – the easy, mile-long route is suitable to for all ages, and is fully accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Participants are also asked to try to raise sponsorship for CancerCare – and the child raising the most money will get the chance to switch on the city’s Christmas lights later in the day with Father Christmas himself!
Registration is open now at http://www.thesantadash.org.uk/.
