Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Head to Clapham Common next month to witness a sea of Father Christmases on a festive jogging route – as thousands of Londoners take part in a fun run to raise money for children being treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
Santa Dash participants will be donning their Father Christmas suits to take on the festive 5k and 10k routes across the south London park on Sunday December 9.
A festive samba band will be there to keep runners motivated along the route, while the London Brass Band will be tooting their most Christmassy numbers, with everyone receiving a mince pie and a mulled drink at the end.
Fancy suiting up among the thousands of runners yourself? The event is open to adults and kids – and all runners will receive a free Santa suit to wear as they make their merry way around the course.
The route is flat, if you need any more persuading, so it’s great for all levels – whether you’re looking to jog about with friends, beat your personal best or burn off the pre-Christmas excesses. And while the real Santa’s got Rudolph, you can bring your own best helper, as dogs are encouraged to take part in the dash too.
All the money raised will be going to GOSH Children’s Charity, to support seriously ill children from across the UK, who are cared for at GOSH in Bloomsbury. GOSH Charity raises vital cash to help these children by funding pioneering research, providing medical equipment and supporting services for children and their families, as well as funding the rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital.
Get into the festive spirit and help create a better future for seriously ill children at Great Ormond Street Hospital by taking part in this festive 5k or 10k, sponsored by Galliard Homes. And have a ton of festive fun while you’re doing it!
