Santa Dash

The Santa Dash returns for its ninth year!

Date: Sunday 1st December 2019
Time: 11am start
Venue: Victoria Park, Widnes, WA8 7SU
Distance: approx 4.5km
Event sponsors: Quay Pharma

Taking place at Victoria Park in Widnes on Sunday 1st December, this 4.5km sponsored fun run is a wonderful festive event for all the family!

Every Santa Dash participant will receive a Santa suit to wear for the run, creating a fantastic sight on event day as hundreds of Santas dash the four lap route around Victoria Park.

There will be mince pies and a medal waiting for you at the finish line!

Win a TV!

The Santa Dash is a sponsored event to raise funds for Halton Haven Hospice. Anyone who raises at least £10 in sponsorship (or sponsors themselves £10!) will be entered into a draw to win a brand new LG LED TV! The draw will be made sometime after the Santa Dash once all sponsorship has been submitted to the Hospice.

What your support means to us

You will receive sponsor forms and the opportunity to create an online fundraising page, allowing you to raise plenty of sponsorship for patient care here at the Hospice.

Your sponsorship from the Santa Dash helps to fund patient care at the Haven. It costs over £2.6 million to run the Hospice every year and we receive under half of that in government funding. We rely entirely on the local community to help us raise more than £1.3 million to ensure the Hospice stays open. Your support in raising sponsorship from the Santa Dash is hugely appreciated by all of us at Halton Haven.

Thank you

We would like to say a big thank you to Halton Borough Council for their continued support of the Santa Dash. Without their assistance, the event would not be able to go ahead. We are very grateful!

Thank you also to Quay Pharma who have kindly continued their sponsorship of the Santa Dash for a second year.

Quay Pharma is an independent, privately owned company with the scientific expertise to respond flexibly to each new challenge, and give every project the best possible chance of a successful clinical trial.
