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

    Nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like pulling on a Santa suit and running, jogging or walking 5k for 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!

    Taking place on Sunday 9th December at Victoria Park in Leamington Spa, you will take on a 5k run, jog or walk.

    We are hoping to raise £38,000 from your Santa Dash sponsorship this year so we can continue providing our services to people with terminal and life limiting illnesses, and their families, over the festive period. Join hundreds of other Santa’s and Elves and do something amazing for your local charity this Christmas!

    Check in:

    Check in on the day is from 9am for people running at 10am, and from 10am for those jogging or walking at 11am.

    Check in will be clearly signposted and located in Victoria Park, Leamington Spa. When you check in please let us know how much sponsorship money you have raised so far; this will help us estimate how much the event has raised in total.

    Pre check-in:

    This year you will have the option to check-in in advance to collect your Santa suit and/or elf suit.

    Pre check-in will be at Warwick Myton Hospice (Myton Lane, off Myton Road, Warwick, CV34 6PX) on Saturday 24th November from 10am to 1pm. You don’t need to bring anything with you, just give your details and the details of anyone else whose pack you might be collecting on their behalf.

    Please note: if you check-in in advance you won’t need to do so on the day itself (which means at least another 15 minutes in bed!)


    We ask that all our Santas and elves gather at Victoria Park (CV31 3PH). If you have never seen hundreds of Santas gathered like this before you are in for quite a treat!


    Starting at Victoria Park, Santas and elves will complete two laps of the park and surrounding areas. There will be clear signage throughout the route and there will be plenty of volunteer marshals to direct you and cheer you on!

    The Suits:

    All adult Santa suits are one size fits all and include adjustable trousers, a jacket and even a beard (so you don’t need to grow your own!) Please bring your own belt and make sure you wear suitable footwear and clothes underneath to keep you warm.

    We also have Youth and Junior Santa suits which include a jacket, trousers and a hat.

    As we all know Santa couldn’t get ready for Christmas without his elves so younger children taking part in the dash will receive elf suits.


    There will be portable toilets located in Victoria Park.

    First Aid:

    If you are feeling unwell or need first aid please call the events team mobile: 07599 752835. Warwickshire Ambulance Association will be on hand to deal with any incidents.

    Please be aware that as the event is held in winter the weather conditions are likely to be more adverse, so please take care along the route and make sure you wear suitable footwear.


    It is no secret that we love dogs here at Myton! We would like to welcome all well-behaved dogs to this year’s event, but please bear in mind the event will be very busy and there will be lots of other dogs on site.


    We always like to make sure our supporters are well fed when taking part in our events so there will be tasty bacon or sausage sandwiches available to buy throughout the event as well as a range of hot and cold drinks to keep you hydrated before and afterwards!
