Registration is now closed for this event.

Don't worry, you can still take part - please come along from 10.15am and register on the day. 

Our festive family fun run is a firm favourite of Saint Catherine’s supporters across the region.

This year we have given you the option to take it a little more seriously. Free chip timers are available for all runners so you can reach your PB before you reach for your Christmas pud!

Race options:

5K/10K MAIN RUN (Run for fun or challenge yourself): The 5K route begins at the Sealife Centre, Scarborough. Runners dash along Scarborough seafront to Hairy Bob’s skate park then swiftly turn around and dash back to the Sealife Centre. The 10K route is the 5K route… but you do it twice!

2K KIDS RUN: The Children’s Run stretches 2K along the seafront for our keen 'Santas in Training'. Parents, grandparents, families and friends can join the mini Santa’s but they must remember to register to get their free Santa suit!

For any of the above race options you can chose to time yourself with an optional race chip timer (included in your registration fee). Don’t forget to select the option when you register.

All Santas will be given free entry to the Sealife Centre after the event. Friends and families of our Santas have been offered half price entry to the Sealife Centre after the event!

Santas should arrive around 30 minutes before the event. Please note there will be no parking available at the Scalby Mills car park.

You can register on the 'SIGN UP NOW' form above or alternatively to get your registration form posted out to you please call Fundraising on 01723 378406 between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.

With thanks to our sponsors

Our supporters are amazing! Without them we would not manage to raise the £5.5million a year we need to fund patient care. Events such as Santa Dash are very important in helping us to reach this goal therefore we ask that participants raise sponsorship for taking part. We would hope our supporters are able to raise a minimum of £30 per person to take part.

Need help raising Sponsorship?

We have LOTS of ideas on different and fun ways you can raise your sponsorship for this event. Why not hold a cake sale? You could plan a quiz night or create a DIY car wash on your drive…
