DICKENSIAN DAY 5km SANTA DASH FUN RUN
We are back – for our biggest Dash yet!
Be one of 250 Santas dashing through the village with the 1000s of onlookers lining the pavements!
The Lymm Runners Santa Dash is now an established fixture on the Lymm Dickensian Day celebration. We open the parade in a colourful flash of red and white. Now in its 3rd year, the Fun Run creates such a buzz at the start of the procession as we take the applause from the crowds who line the pavements each year to support this long established event. Entry is open to Fun Runners aged 10+ capable of completing the 5km course.
The start is outside Brookfield Surgery on the canal bridge and we will lead off the Main DICKENSIAN DAY Procession down Eagle Brow and through the heart of the village. It’s a real experience! It is a Fun Run rather than a “race” so you are encouraged to jog down Eagle Brow and through the village to really take-in and enjoy the special atmosphere for a unique run experience.
You will be given a special Santa Suit as part of your entry fee so everyone will be dressed for the occasion. Wear some running gear underneath as you have 5km to run; thru the village to the Trans Pennine Trail to Heatley and back along Reddish Lane. The route can be viewed on our MapMyRun Lymm Runners Santa Dash route map. The finish line is at Sow Brook where you will receive your finishers souvenir and it is a short walk from there back to the village to take part in the rest of the Dickensian Day festivities.

RUN EQUIPMENT FOR SCHOOLS:
With any profits of the Dash, Lymm Runners aim to make equipment donations to the local Lymm Primary Schools to support and help in the development of junior running in the local community. We have donated a bag full of training kit to Cherry Tree & Statham Primary Schools and supplied race kit for Cherry Tree Cross Country Team. If your school could benefit from acquiring some athletic training kit then get in touch with Chris, Chief Santa on firstname.lastname@example.org.
