Galway – Santa Dash

"Santa Dash Galway 5K and 10K"

Santa Dash Galway 5 K and 10 K

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

Santa Dash is proudly supporting Galway Simon Community

Santa Dash in Galway is inviting families and friends to embrace their inner Santa and take part in the annual 5K and 10K fun run to help raise vital funds for the Galway Simon Community

They are encouraging families and friends to get dressed up in their Santa gear and join them at Claddagh Hall, South Park, Co. Galway. 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 800 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!”

Santa Claus has kindly lent hundreds of his spare red suits to keep you warm as you run or walk the Santa Dashin Galway.

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