Get in the festive spirit by taking part in The Myton Hospice’s famous Santa Dash in Leamington Spa!

Nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like pulling on a Santa suit and running, jogging or walking 5km for your local charity.

So, whether signing up gives you the perfect excuse to lace up your running shoes despite the cold weather, or if you want to get the family together for some festive fundraising, this is the event for you!


When: Sunday 12th December 2021

Adult price: £20

Children price: £10




Taking place on Sunday 12th December you will take on a 5km run, jog or walk around Victoria Park in Leamington Spa – all from 10am.

And this year we’re making our Santa Dash bigger and better than ever before – with a whole host of fun events and attractions to make it a great day out for the whole family.

Meet Santa and real reindeers...

These include Santa and his Reindeers, an inflatable snow globe to have your photo taken in, performances by Rock Choir and Leamington Spa Brass – not to mention a dance warm up before the Dash begins.

We are hoping to raise £35,000 from your Santa Dash sponsorship this year so we can continue providing our services to people with a life limiting illness, and their families, over the festive period.

Join hundreds of other Santas and elves and do something amazing for your local charity this Christmas!

Santa and his Reindeers will be there to welcome everyone over the finishing line – and everyone taking part will receive an environmentally friendly medal made from recycled wood, which can also be re-used as a tree decoration.

We’re very conscious of making our events as environmentally friendly as possible.

With this in mind, we will be providing suits for participants who need them, but are also encouraging you to reuse suits if you have taken part in our Santa Dash previously - or wear your own festive fancy dress!

Should you need a costume; all adult Santa suits are one size fits all and include adjustable trousers, a jacket and even a beard, and the Youth and Junior Santa suits include a jacket, trousers and a hat and can be ordered when you sign up online.

Back for 2021:

Santa’s Little Helpers...

This year we’re hoping to have a team of fundraisers who will be our very special Santa’s Little Helpers! Pledge to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship and you will receive a festive present on the day of our Santa Dash event. Adults and children welcome!

Best Dressed Dog...

We’ve always encouraged well-behaved dogs to take part in our Santa Dash events, and this year we are putting your four-legged fundraisers in the spotlight with a festive fancy dress competition – free of charge!

Whether they have a Christmas jumper, Santa suit or antlers to wear, dress your dog in something festive and enter them into our first ever Best Dressed Dog competition. There will even be a prize for the top dog!

As well as playing host to hundreds of Santas and elves, Victoria Park will be filled with festive music, refreshments and entertainment!

This event is the perfect way to kick-start Christmas for the whole family!
