Darlington Santa Run

Darlington Santa Run 2020 will be a little different this year but we ho-ho-hope you can still take part for some festive fun!

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation we are unable to gather safely for a group run. Instead, please support your local Hospice by registering to put on the big red suit and run or walk a route of your choice on Sunday 6th December!

Register now by completing the form and payment details below. Please complete details for each participant you are registering.

Adults (16+): £15
Children (5-15): Standard £10
Under 5s: No charge (must be accompanied by paying adult)
Dogs: No charge

Everyone who signs up will receive a Santa suit, or a hat for children, and there is no entry fee for anyone under five – dogs are welcome too!

Pick a route and complete your run or walk at your own speed. We’ll send some fundraising tips when you register.

As an early Christmas present you will receive a medal afterwards for taking part!

So, whether you’re a Santa Sprinter and want to tackle a 5k run or you would prefer to take it a little easier and go for an Elf Amble, get together with those in your social bubble and get ready for a memorable start to Christmas!
