Derby Santa Run

December 11

This Christmas, join us as we dash through Markeaton Park as we bring you, in partnership with our friends at Rainbows Children’s Hospice, the Derby Santa Run!

Taking place on Sunday 4 December, this festive event is perfect for the whole family… whether you want to hop, skip, dance or run the route “yule” be sure to have lots of fantastic festive fun. 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 run; while you’ll also receive a finishers medal and goody bag once you’ve crossed the finish line.

And to get all the family involved, the event is also open to your ‘Santa Paws’, so bring your pooches along too*. To help make the event ‘pawsome’ for the four-legged friends taking part, there’s also the opportunity to purchase a Festive Dog Bandanna when booking – because we wouldn’t want the pooches to feel left out!

The route:

Markeaton Park is set to be filled with Santas who are invited to take on either the 2.5km route (one lap) or the 5km route (two laps) as they help spread the Christmas cheer.

More details to come soon.
