Santa Dash 2011
If late night shopping and the tinkering festive lights haven’t succeeded in drawing you out of your cosy abode yet this season then I may have found something that will. Let me introduce you to the Santa Dash: a unique concept that blends exercise, charity and Christmas fancy dress. All ages can register to run either a 2.5km or 4km route whilst bedecked in a felted Santa costume, complete with beard, all in the name of charity.
I can think of no better way to embrace the festive season than to participate in some mad charitable Santa antics. That, and adding some falling snow to my blog… But I digress. I, along with four trusty fundraising Santa sidekicks, will be taking part in the Santa Dash in Plymouth this Sunday 4th December. The 4km route really is a dash around the city centre and will raise money for Children’s Hospice South West and Diabetes UK. If you are feeling generous you can make a donation online or join in yourself! Numerous Santa Dashes will be taking place across the country throughout the month of December.
Keep a look out for some “dashing” photos! The forecast is for rein(dear) so don’t be surprised if all they show are some bedraggled runners in soggy one-size-fits-all Santa suits. Apologies in advance!
