On your marks, get set, “ho, ho, ho!”
The race is on to join the scores of Santas who will be dashing for cash through the streets of St Helens on Saturday 6 December as part of the town’s 3rd annual Santa Dash.
Organised by Willowbrook Hospice and the Steve Prescott Foundation, the festive fun run will set off from Church Square at 11am, following a route that is nearly 4km, which will include crossing the Steve Prescott Bridge and a lap of the Saints Stadium.
Entry for the St Helens Santa Dash is £12 for adults, £6 for 5-16 year olds with under 5s free. Adult entry includes a free Santa suit while children will receive a free Santa hat. All Santa’s will also receive a luxury Marks & Spencers Mince Pie.
Nicky Saunders, Willowbrook Hospice’s Fundraising Manager said: “The Santa Dash is a great way to celebrate the season of goodwill, have some fun and help us raise funds for two very worthy causes.”
Martin Blondel General Manager of The Steve Prescott Foundation said “We are elated that the Santa Dash has come back to its original route. We would like to thank St Helens RFC for allowing all Santa’s to run around the Langtree Park pitch and take in the stadium. We have also been working with St Helens Council events team and St Helens Parish Church to stage festive entertainment throughout the day!”
