Carlisle Santa Dash and Fun Run

This event has two simple objectives. Firstly and most import is to raise as much money as possible for the Jigsaw Charity, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice at a time of the year when children should be in the forefront of all our minds. We are hoping that 100% of all entry fees will go to The Jigsaw Charity. For us to achieve this, we are seeking companies to support the event by supplying goods for the event or meeting the costs that will be incurred. So if anyone reading this owns a business or knows someone that would like to get involved please ask them to get in touch at Sport in Action, Carlisle Tri Club, DH Runners, Border Reiver Runners and all marshals will be giving up their time free of charge. If you can’t take part and would like to marshal (Santa suits will be provided), then please get in touch and send us your details; Name, Mobile and Email. The Second objective is to have fun and enjoy the day, whatever the weather. The Santa Dash is a 5K run and will be manually timed. ALL runners must wear a Santa Suit. There will be no winners prizes, Jigsaw will be the winner. We have decided to start the 5K 60mins before the Fun Run/Walk so all those taking part in the 5K can join friends and family in the fun run/walk. The Fun Run/Walk -Santa suits will be provided to all entries. Children 5 years and over we will have suits for 5 to 8 or 9 to 14 and the adult suit is one size fits all. Please enter early to guarantee you get the sizes you are after. Entries under 5 are free. Medals for ages 3 to 5 or a Santa Hat and medal if preferred. Remember, as the weather will be cold at this time of year, we advise you wear suitable layers underneath the Santa Suit. All Runners and Fun Runners/ Walkers will receive a Festive Medal on completing their Santa Dash that can be worn with pride and displayed on your Christmas tree for all to see. If you enter the Santa Dash you can select to also run/walk in the Santa Fun Run Free of Charge
