Santa Dash 2017 – Important Information Please Read – UPDATED

We hope that you are well and have been able to stay safe and warm during the recent wintery weather.


We wanted to take this opportunity to apologise once again for having had to cancel the Santa dash on Sunday.  It was a huge disappointment, however as we are sure you will understand, the safety of our supporters and volunteers had to come first.


We understand that lots of you will want to do something in place of the Santa Dash as you have raised sponsorship for Myton, which we are incredibly grateful for.


Santa Dash Take 2…

With this in mind we have put together a smaller scale Santa Dash at Warwick Myton Hospice this Sunday 17th December at 10am and we would like to invite all of our Santa’s and Elves to join us.  Due to this being organised at very short notice we will be unable to provide the level of entertainment and refreshments that were scheduled to be on offer previously, but what we can offer is a fantastic atmosphere of Christmas Cheer and Festive Fundraising Spirit! It would be amazing to see as many Santa’s and Elves as possible!


Parking on the Day will be available at Warwick School’s main car park, Myton Road, CV34 6PP and Myton School coach car park.  If you have already registered and collected your Santa suits, please don’t forget to bring them along.  Alternatively you can pick them up from Warwick Myton Hospice Reception this week or collect them on the day.


Please note, that with the conditions being so icy – we will be asking our dashers to walk the event. Please ensure you come dressed appropriately and only need to put your Santa costume on top of your clothing as there will be no changing facilities.




We understand that this is very short notice at a very busy time of year and so not everyone will be able to make it but we don’t want anyone to miss out.  So we have also been in touch with the local Park Runs and they have been very supportive and would welcome our supporters to complete their 5K at one of their upcoming Park Runs.  Leamington Park Run have their own Santa Run on Saturday 23rd December at 9am at Newbold Comyn Park.  It is free to attend, but participants would need to register in advance here


Alternatively you can do your 5K whenever and wherever it suits you!



Please don’t forget to share your photos.  We are gutted we won’t be able to share this experience with everyone in person so we would love to see the pictures of you at your Santa best – just share them to the Santa Dash Event page on Facebook or email them to


Santa Suits and Medals…

If you are coming along to Santa Dash Take 2 at Warwick Myton Hospice on Sunday 17th December, you will be able to pick these up on the day.

Alternatively, you can pick up your Santa Suits and medals from Warwick Myton Hospice Reception from Thursday 14th until Friday 22nd December.  Please let us know in advance so we can make sure they are ready for collection by contacting Lucy Turner at or 01926 838 825
