Santa Dash 2018

November 24 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

£7.50 - £10.00

The Mary Ann Evans Hospice‘s Winter Market & Santa Dash will for the first time ever take place on the same day at the Hospice on Saturday 24th November 2018.

Starting and finishing at the Mary Ann Evans Hospice on the George Eliot Hospital Site in Nuneaton, the untimed 5k festive frolic will set you up for Christmas. Friendly dogs are welcome, with an alternate route for those in wheelchairs or pushchairs so all of the family can get involved.

Entry is only £10 for adults & £7.50 for under 16’s in advance and includes your Santa Suit & a medal. Under 5’s run for free (suit not included). We’d love for you to raise sponsorship through taking part in this event. You can set up an online fundraising page by visiting Just Giving or you can download the printable sponsorship form below. If you raise £100 sponsorship you can get your registration fee back!

All participants will be warmed up on the day by Lou’s Zumba before you dash off around the 5k course at 9:45am. Registration is from 9am and the warm up starts at 9:30am.

Once you’ve completed the run, why not have a look around our Winter Market? There will be stalls, gifts, face painting & even Santa will make an appearance. Guests will also have the chance to go walking in a Winter Wonderland and take part in the elf trail.

Food will be available to purchase from the Hospice Kitchen in the form of hot rolls & tray bakes. For those of you wanting to do some Christmas shopping, each Hospice department will be running a variety of stalls including raffles, tombola’s, books and toys & jigsaws. Once again the team at the Hospice will be joined by Bedworth & District Craft Club which hosts a number of different stall holders whose gifts & products are always unique. Entry into the Winter Market is FREE!

You can book your place on the Santa Dash below or alternatively, you can call the Fundraising Office on 024 7686 5436 to book over the phone.

Please note, online booking will close at 3pm on Thursday 22nd November.
