We will bring you the inaugural family friendly Santa Dash. Taking place at Woodbank Athletics Stadium, Woodbank Park – 11am on Saturday 9th December.
Get into the Christmas spirit at this free one mile fun run around the beautiful paths of Woodbank Park. The course is completely flat – so whether you’re in a wheelchair or pushing a buggy, this event is suitable for you.
Each participant will receive a Santa hat to wear during the run, a certificate, and a mince pie. Please feel free to bring your own Santa suit or other festive attire.
Stockport County’s Vernon Bear will be joining in and there will be a free raffle with the chance to win a £100 Sports Feet Voucher.
The Stadium will be a hub of Christmas cheer with seasonal music and a range of tasty treats including the famous hot dogs on sale at the tuck shop.
Councillor Frankie Singleton, Cabinet Member for Communities, Culture and Sport, said: “The Town of Culture Santa Dash is a great way for the people of Stockport to come together young and old. The mile course will hopefully attract a wide range of people who wouldn’t normally join a race to celebrate moving in a fun and lively way, like the Stockport Moves event but this time with a Christmas twist.”
Dave Hulley, Chair of Stockport Harriers & AC, added: “Stockport Harriers are proud to be hosting this event and seeing people from the whole community get moving together. We enjoy giving people the opportunity to take part in running and athletics at any level, from total beginners, right through to elite runners. Taking part in the Santa Dash will give a wide range of people the opportunity to complete a mile race with a final sprint on the track, just like the pros.”
Places are limited to 300 so book early to avoid disappointment. There will be no entries on the day.
Toilets (including an accessible toilet) and First Aid will be available at the Club House where the Start and Finish is located.
