Why do I need to raise sponsorship and where does my money go?

Your registration fee is absorbed by the costs of running such a special event. These vary from buying the Santa suits to closing the roads. Every pound of sponsorship goes towards supporting your local hospice to continue to provide specialist care and support to those living with terminal illness and their families in the local community.

How do I raise money for Halton Haven?

The simplest way of raising funds is via Just Giving. Go to and follow the instructions choosing Halton Haven Hospice to start fundraising straight away.

You will also receive a sponsorship form with your welcome email should you wish to fundraise this way. If you would like any advice on how to raise as much as you can for Halton Haven Hospice, please contact us at

Can I bring my children?

The Santa Dash is a family event, we LOVE to see all the family take part! We have a limited range of child size Santa suits available so please enquire as soon as possible after registering to get hold of the right size. All children under 5 can enter the Dash free of charge but do need to be registered so we know for numbers on the day.

No suit is included for under 5’s but we do encourage fancy dress!

What time do I need to arrive for the Dash?

Please try to arrive in plenty of time for the 10am start at West bank Boat Club Café, Spike Island. The sign in/new registration area will be open from 9am. We would advise at least 30 minutes prior to make sure you are all ready to go.

You may like to grab yourself a cuppa from the Café before also.

Will there be parking available for me on the day?

We have no designated parking for participants on the day.

Anthony’s Travel have kindly offered to transport participants from the finish area back to the start.

Will there be refreshments available?

There will refreshments available to purchase at West Bank Boat Club Café at the starting area and there will also be water available for all participants at the end of the Dash. Costa Coffee will be open by the finish line and Ten Lock Flight pub opens at 12 midday.

Is there anywhere where I can get changed?

No, unfortunately there are no changing facilities at the start of the event. Please make sure you are suitably dressed for the dash and please make sure you take the weather into account when getting ready on the morning.

What should I do if I have a query on the day of the event?
