Hundreds enjoy iconic Santa Dash event in Leamington Spa

Hundreds of people turned out to support a local hospice while having a bit of festive fun. The annual Santa Dash took place in Leamington yesterday (Sunday) and crowds did not disappoint.

With a mini dash for children under 12 and a best dressed dog competition, there was something for the whole family.

The popular event takes place in aid of Myton Hospice and raises funds for their vital work. As runners crossed the finish line, Santa was on hand to congratulate them and there was a whole host of family entertainment with face painters, food vendors, an inflatable snow globe and Christmas market stalls.

All the runners received a Santa Dash medal to proudly hang on their Christmas tree. The Myton Hospice’s famous Santa Dash at Victoria Park, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, a 5K festive charity fun run with around 1300 Santa’s. December 10, 2023.
