Organiser's Description

The Santa Dash is now in it's 3rd year and is a firm festive favourite amongst our regular runners! Dress up as a Christmas pudding, an inflatable turkey (yes this has happened) or just come along in your running kit and hope not to be called Scrooge!

This year's event will take place at Gypsy Brae Recreation Ground, Silverknowes on Sunday 18th December at 10.30am and will be fundraising for Young Lives vs Cancer (formally known as CLIC Sargent).

Join us on the start line for a 7km dash, a 14km dash or a 21km dash (it's actually a little bit more than 21km, to make it an official half marathon).
