This Christmas, join us and our friends at Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, and Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity at Markeaton Park for the Derby Santa Run!
Taking place on Sunday, 11 December (with a BRAND NEW 5K route) the Derby Santa Run is perfect for all ages. Whether you hop, skip, dance or run the route, “yule” be sure to have lots of festive fun. We’re also inviting Santa Paws to get involved, and they can wear their own special ‘pawsome’ festive bandana!
As a gift from us to you this Christmas, everyone who signs up to take part will also receive their very own Santa suit (under-3s are free but do not receive a suit) before they start the fun run; while you’ll also receive a finishers medal and goody bag once you’ve crossed the finish line.
Along with taking part in the new route, on the day there's also the chance to meet Frozen's Anna and Elsa, and indulge in some delicious refreshments.
We’ve got a BRAND NEW 5K route at Markeaton Park for the 2022, which will see you and hundreds of other Santas dash through the park towards the footgolf course, before arriving at the craft village, where you’ll fly across the bridge to The Mundy play centre before ho-ho-hoping your way round the Lakeside Walk to the finish.
