Santa Claus is coming to town – and he won’t be alone!
DASH into the Christmas season with CancerCare’s festive fun run – and join the crowds of Santas as they race around Lancaster’s shopping streets.
Now in its fifth year, the charity’s fundraising Santa Dash and Reindeer Run is on Sunday November 24, as part of a day of activities to celebrate the switch on of the city’s Christmas lights.
Each year, hundreds of Santas join the fun and dash around the city centre in aid of local cancer support charity CancerCare. The entrance fee (Adults £6, Children £3, under 5’s free) includes a Santa suit for the adults and reindeer antlers for the under 11s.
The dash itself starts at 1pm – with a fun warm-up led by Ludus Dance for the massed Santas in Market Square at 12.45pm. Whether you run, walk, jog, dance, prance or jingle all the way – the easy, mile-long route is suitable to for all ages, and is fully accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Participants are also asked to try to raise sponsorship for CancerCare – and the child raising the most money will get the chance to switch on the city’s Christmas lights later in the day with Father Christmas himself!
Santa and his reindeer will be out and about in the town centre later in the day, as part of the city centre’s lights switch-on celebration.
CancerCare is a local charity dedicated to providing free of charge, supportive care to more than 1,500 people in North Lancashire and South Lakeland each year who are facing cancer, whether as patients, carers or family members.
Jane Staniford, fundraising team leader, said: “The Santa Dash is a great way to raise money for local people who are affected by cancer – as well as having lots of fun with your friends, family or colleagues in the lead-up to Christmas. What better way to spend £6 this Christmas?”
“Taking part is really special – and you can’t fail to have fun when you’re surrounded by Santas!”
