Santa Run Hereford

Join hundreds of Santa’s dashing through Hereford on Sunday, 19 December.  

On your marks, get set, Ho Ho Ho. The Hereford Santa Run brings a flash of red to the City centre with hundreds of runners dressed as Santa Claus to spread festive fun and burn a few cheeky calories for the holidays.
Choose between the 2.5k and 5k routes, both of which are signed, marshalled and as traffic free as we can make them.
Santa Suit adult entry: £12.00 Includes Santa suit, running number, time, bottle of water, sweet treat and medal,
Santa suit child entry £8.00 Includes Santa suit, running number, time, bottle of water, sweet treat and medal.
Registration opens at 9.00am and closes at 9.50am Warm up: 9.55am Start Time: 10.00am
Choose between our 5K or 2.5K runs. Both of the two runs are fully signed and marshalled. After crossing the finish line, each runner will receive a medal, bottle of water, sweet treat and later check their time online.
There’s no prizes for winning so you’re welcome to walk, jog or run your way around whichever course you choose. The main thing is to have some festive fun, dressed up as Santa and raising vital funds for St Michael’s Hospice.
We are happy to accept wheelchair entrants however dogs are not permitted.
