Santa Run

The Santa Run is a great way to make a difference at Christmas for people affected by eating disorders.

What is the Santa Run?

London’s Santa Run is the largest of its kind in the UK, bringing a flash of red to the streets of the city with thousands of runners dressed as Santa Claus to spread the festive feeling.  

The fun run is for all abilities as you can walk, jog or run your way around a 5k or 10k course and recover to the sounds of festive music, while sampling the delights of mince pies.

This scenic Santa route is pram and wheelchair friendly, and children over eight years can join in the main event so that the whole family can come down for the day!

How do I take part?

Simply book your place today for £25 and receive your free Santa costume on the day. Our friendly fundraising team will be in contact with you to send you on your merry way.

You can set up a Just Giving page to get your fundraising started here. And you'll receive a fundraising pack from Beat too! Our event organisers Skyline will provide plenty of support too, leaving you to focus on being a Santa.
