Santa Dash Dublin 5 K and 10 K 2019

Get the Christmas season started in style with a 5k or 10K Santa Dash Fun Run

Santa Dash are working with various different Charities this year based on who the volunteers wish to donate money to.

Santa Dash in Dublin is inviting families and friends to embrace their inner Santa and take part in the annual 5K and 10 k fun run Santa Dash to help raise vital funds to help support various different Charities across Ireland

They are encouraging families and friends to get dressed up in their Santa gear and join them on the beach on North Bull Island. It is a great family day out and all for a good cause.

Mr Claus said: “It’s really important to me to be fit and healthy, especially with my busiest night of the year fast approaching. Last year’s Santa Dash was fantastic with over 1,500 boys and girls and their mammies, daddies and friends joining in. This year, it’s set to be even bigger and I’m really hoping to take the prize for the ‘fastest Santa’ – that would be magic!”

As part of the entry, each participant gets a Santa suit, post race tea, biscuits and snacks, an awesome Christmas themed medal and all children get a visit with Santa.

It really should be a sight to behold – hundreds of Santa’s running on Bull Island beach ! The day itself is a great opportunity for families, friends and colleagues to get together and have a lot of fun whilst also raising funds for a good cause.

The course is suitable for runners and walkers of all ages and four legged friends all welcome too!

Family Fun Tip:- Not great for runners with buggies or children on scooters due to been held on a beach
