Following the growing success of the past couple of years, Bexhill Lions Club is holding the town’s third Santa Dash on Saturday 5th December.

This popular fun 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 this sponsored 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 Santas will “dash” (at their own pace!) along the seafront towards Brookfield Road , returning to the DLWP terrace, a distance of 2km (1.2miles). Or for those Santas 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 Brian Comber 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. Registration will be available on the day but we may not be able to guarantee a suit. We are looking forward to another colourful event.

Entry is £11.00 Adults (14 yrs+) and £6 child(5-14yrs). This includes a free Santa outfit for you to run in. These can be collected from the Lions stall at the Farmers Market on the following Fridays; Nov 20th, Nov 27th and December 4th. 08.00- 2.00pm. To register visit www.bexhill-triathlon.co.uk

Lion President Paul Fleming said “This is a great event that the whole town can be involved with and we hope hundreds will take part. Last year the sight of over 150 Santas, classic cycles and the marching ATC in full santa uniform was 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 the Bexhill Lions Club Charitable Trust Fund which supports deserving causes within the local community.
