Sleigh Bells ring, are you listening? On Lands Lane, we’ll be waiting, a beautiful sight, seeing so many in red and white, dashing in a winter wonderland.
Have you heard the news? Santa Claus is coming to town! Here’s the catch; there won’t just be one, two or even 10 Santa’s heading to Leeds this year, there will be hundreds taking to the streets for the Santa Dash in Leeds City Centre to raise money for St Gemma’s Hospice. Last year we had over 1000 Santa’s taking part for St Gemma’s and we hope to have the same success this year!
So it’s time to earn those mince pies and sign up for this amazingly festive event on Sunday 9th December 2018 starting at 9.30am!
Raising incredibly vital funds for St Gemma’s Hospice is a great way to start the festive season, helping St Gemma’s bring joy and happiness to their patients. Depending on your ability you can dash through the city, taking in the Christmas sights, for either 1 or up to 5k. The dash is suitable for Santa’s or Elves of all ages and abilities (wheelchair/pram friendly route).
There will be lots of seasonal cheer from the crowds to get you on your way. A warm up to loosen those limbs will take place at the start, led by a live brass band to get you in the seasonal spirit. Plus hundreds of other Santa’s to dash, dance or prance the pavements with. Don’t forget to warm your fingers and toes with hot drinks and free food at Little Tokyo after the dash!
