Dorothy House’s ever-popular Santa and Elf Run is back for 2022.
Taking place on Sunday 4 December, the event will see Santa’s and Elves complete the 2.5 or 5km route at around the Hospice in Winsley.
This Christmas-tastic family fun run is open to all ages and takes place along a 2.5km course through the beautiful grounds of Dorothy House Hospice and starting/ending at Winsley Cricket Club. Participants can choose to do the 2.5km route once or twice to make it a 5km run.
The fun run starts at 11am on 4 December with registration from 10am and a warm-up session at 10.50am. Entry costs £15 for 12+ years and £7.50 for 2-11 year olds. All 12+ year old participants will receive a Santa suit and 2-11 year olds will receive an Elf hat at registration. The festive clothing is included in the entry fee plus refreshments after the run. All runners aged 16 years and under must be accompanied by an adult.
All adult entrants are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £30 or make a donation in lieu of sponsorship to help support patient care at Dorothy House.
Dan Varley, Community and Events Fundraiser at Dorothy House said: “We are so excited to get everyone back in their festive gear for another year of the Santa and Elf Run and even more thrilled to be bringing it back to the Hospice. A huge thank you to our partners at Winsley Cricket Club for supporting the event too!”
Those taking part will be helping to raise vital funds for Dorothy House and will allow the Hospice to continue to deliver outstanding care to patients and their families, including at Christmas, a time that can be difficult for many.
The day will include not just the route to run, but added fun like a spinning photo booth, snow for spectators to throw and a raffle to raise additional funds! Make sure to bring all the family, even those not running, and we’ll have tea, coffee and cake available for those spectating.
The course is also perfect for your four-legged friends, so there is no need for them to miss out!
This is your chance to be part of something special. Grab your Santa suit or elf hat, have fun and raise some money for your much-loved Hospice. Sign up today: https://www.dorothyhouse.org.uk/get-involved/events/santa-elf-run-2022/
