Yo! Ho! Ho! Santa Dash returns to Bexhill

 Following the growing success of the past few years, We are holding our fun Santa Dash on Saturday 3rd December.

This popular family festive event is open to all ages and abilities. The De La Warr Pavilion and Bexhill’s seafront will again be the setting for the event. So get into the festive spirit, whilst raising vital funds for your chosen good causes. You can run, jog, walk, push prams, walk the dog or use a wheelchair on the flat user friendly promenade. This year there will be awards for the best decorated pram, wheelchair and dog.

Registration is from 10.30am on the DLWP terrace and the festive hooter will start the entrants from near the fountains at 11.30am. The Sauntering Santa’s will “dash” (at their own pace!) along the Seafront towards Brookfields Road , returning to the DLWP terrace, a distance of 2km(1.2miles). Or for those Santa’s  keen to get in training for their busy Christmas deliveries can go on to Galley Hill then turn back to West Parade Toilets and return to the terrace, a distance of 5km (3.1miles).

Event Organiser Andrea Etheridge said” We would like people to register as soon as possible so that we have a good idea as to how many suits we will need.

You can register Here £11.50 Adults (14 yrs+) and £6.50 child(5-14yrs), which includes a free Santa outfit for you to run in. Sponsorship forms can also be downloaded. Registration will be available on the day but we may not be able to guarantee a suit. We are looking forward to another great colourful event.”

Suits can be collected from the Lions’ stall at the Farmers’ Market on the Friday  25th Nov or 2nd December 09.00am – 2.00pm. They can also be collected at Registration on the day.

Lion President Rick Hough said “This is a great event that the whole town can be involved with and we hope hundreds will take part. In the past years the sight of over 160 Santas, classic cycles and the marching ATC in full santa uniform were just brilliant. So come along with family, friends, school mates and work colleagues and start the festive season with a really FUN event”.

All proceeds from the event will go to our Charitable Trust Fund which supports deserving causes within the local community.
