Our Christmas season will be a little different this year with the annual Santa Dash changing its format and going virtual this year.

The usual sight of hundreds of Santa’s running through the streets will not be seen this year, but those wanting to pull on a red suit, hat and running trainers and pound the streets around their local area to support us can still so so.

The event usually sees people from all over descend upon Nantwich and has over the past nine years raised £30,000 to support seriously ill children and their families in our local area.

While Santa’s will not be getting together, people are encouraged to spread a bit of Christmas cheer by signing up, dress up in the famous suit and hat and hit the streets to take on 5K or 2.5K on Sunday, December 13.

A Santa Dash to remember

Fundraiser Hannah Robinson said: “The Santa Dash is a highlight in our calendar every year, and while we have had to do things differently this year, we’ve no doubt that our fantastic supporters will once again get behind us and make this an event to remember.

“We need your support more than ever and look forward to seeing all your pictures of you dressed up as Santa and running in your local area. There will also be a fancy dress competition, so have a think about your festive costume.”

The event is being sponsored by Tarporley and Oswestry-based recycling firm RUK Group and the good news is anyone can enter.

Registration for the Santa Dash is £10 for adults and £5 for children, with all those entering getting a goodie bag and of course a special medal.
