Santa’s on the Run goes freestyle is a virtual version of what was previously a 2k fun run at locations across the south west. This year we are letting you decide if you want to twinkle in tinsel, rock it like Rudolph or sleigh it like Santa - dress up in your festive gear and complete a challenge of your choice all whilst raising seasonal smiles for children and families that are supported by our three hospices.

Create your own festive route and walk, jog, run or even cycle your way around dressed in festive gear in the most inventive way you can. See the full list of ideas

Yes.  We ask you register yourself and the members of your group so we know who is taking part and you receive all the support and information you need.

No! Anyone of any age can be registered, even the dog because you are completing the event in your own time.

Participants who register are not obliged to raise sponsorship however this will not qualify you to receive one of our Santa’s on the run goes freestyle medals. Alternatively, you can make a donation of the suggested sponsorship of £15 for each medal you would like a medal to be sent through to. Please make your donation via our online donation page marking it as your Santa’s on the Run - goes freestyle donation.

If you can't complete your run on these dates, you're welcome to do it either the week before or even the week after the 13 December.  Just, let us know when you've completed it.  For your photos to be included in the virtual competitions they must be added by the evening of Sunday 13 December.

Just add your photos or videos to the Facebook event over the weekend.  It's that simple. We'll announce the winners on Monday 14 December and let you know your prizes!
