Welcome to the Santa Fun Run FAQs page. We hope you will find the answers to all your questions here. If you are still in doubt about anything, please get in touch with the fundraising team by emailing [email protected].

What will I need?

  • Safety pins: you will receive your running number on the day and will need to fasten it to your Santa suit.
  • Running shoes: please wear appropriate footwear that you don’t mind getting wet and muddy. Spiceball Park can get a bit soggy in the winter.
  • A full water bottle: we will offer free refills, but in the interests of environmental protection, we will not supply free disposable plastic bottles.

When can I pick up my Santa suit?

If you have been unable to collect your Santa suit from the hospice this week, you can pick up your suit between 9.30 and 10.30am at Spiceball Park on Sunday 5 December before the run starts.

What time does it start?

Registration opens from 10am. The run will start at approximately 11am.

Can children run the course?

Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Can I bring my dog along?

Yes please! Although please make sure your dog is on a lead at all times.

Is there parking?

There is limited parking at Spiceball. We recommend you park in nearby Castle Quay.

Will there be food?

We’ll have pizzas, bacon rolls and burgers and coffee and cake on sale. Please note that free bottles of water will not be provided. You must bring your own water bottle – free refills will be available.

How can I raise my sponsorship money?

When you register with us, we'll send you a link to our Toolkit page, which includes a fundraising pack and sponsorship form to help you raise your money. 

Is there anything else I can do to help?

We can always use more volunteers on the day to help with the smooth running of the event. If you know of anyone who is interested, please send them to our volunteer page for the Santa Fun Run.
