Organiser's Description

This is your chance to go DASHING THROUGH THE STOW and take over the spectacular Waltham Forest Town Hall site dressed as a real running Santa! Yule be sorry if you miss it!

Like no regular 5K run, this seasonal celebration sees hundreds of runners get together, dress up in identical Santa Suits (complete with beard, hat and belt!) and complete a chip-timed 5K. Ideal for runners of all abilities, this is an event for solo runners and families alike, whether you need to walk, jog or run for deer-life.

For just £15, every runner receives a Santa Suit, a chipped race number, and a brilliant supported run around the iconic town hall site. But wait, there's myrrh. After the run, you'll be rewarded with water, a mince pie, and a unique Santa-themed souvenir finishers' medal!

You won't get a better chance to take a Christmas s(elf)ie.

Spaces (and Santa Suits) are strictly limited (we can't have anyone feeling Claus-trophobic). Enter online to guarantee your place!

Unfortunately, suppliers (in the UK, the North Pole or further afield) only provide Santa Suits in two sizes - one for adults, one for children.

For smaller than a child’s measurements, we'll still provide a child’s suit, but you'll need to use the drawstring, belt (or bring something similar) if you want the suit to stay on whilst your kids move!

For anything larger, you should request an adult suit and use the drawstring/belt accordingly.

All of our events are organised following government and governing body COVID-19 guidance. We will continue to ensure that we deliver safe and enjoyable events.
