Another record breaking year! Thank you so much to everyone who braved the rain at this year’s Santa Dash!

It was incredible to see a record breaking 1,297 Santa’s and Elves dressed from head to mistle-toe in festive attire filling the streets of Leamington this weekend.


Determined not to let the rain dampen your spirits you all ensured the atmosphere was truly phenomenal, spreading a generous dose of Christmas cheer!

For many, the highlight of the day was seeing all the dogs dressed in their finest Christmas gear for the Best Dressed Dog Competition.  Congratulations to our deserving winners and to all who entered!


We wish all our furry friends a Merry Paw-mas!

Of course, we couldn’t pull off such an incredible event without the support of our happy helpers!


Thank you to all our marshals for withstanding the cold to guide our dashers on their merry way. You are all fabulous and give Rudolf a run for his money!


Speaking of Rudolf, we have to say a big thank you to the main man, Santa himself, for taking time out of his busy schedule to cheer you on. We hope he brought a big smile to your face!


It was a pleasure to have Mayor Cllr Alan Boad in attendance and count us down to the start of the dash! And a big thank you has to go to Box Fitness and Lala Pets!

We needed a very special person to create such an amazing atmosphere on the cold Sunday morning and our MC Simon Button did a fantastic job at keeping everyone’s energy up!


We were also treated to some festive entertainment from Royal Brass Band, Contemporary Choir, Rock Choir and Kirsty Anne. It really put us in the Christmas spirit!
