Liverpool Santa Dash

Welcome to the Liverpool Santa Dash and Chester Santa Dash website for the Speedy Santas. The Santa Dash is a 5km run around Liverpool and Chester on 6th December 2015!

A bit more about the Santa Dashes?

It is a 5km (Liverpool) and 3.5km (Chester) run around the streets of the cities dressed as, of course, Santa! Each year trying to be the biggest and best Santa Dash in the world!

The dash is organised by Run Liverpool and over the past few years has seen a wide variety of weathers from -8°C icy conditions, bright sunshine, pouring rain and snow, although the snow was artificial and covered the Santas when the crossed the finish line.

About the Santa Dash

The Santa Dash has been going on for many years all around the world and runs from the Liver Buildings to the Town Hall (5km) in Liverpool and from the banks of the River Dee to the town centre in Chester.

The Liverpool Santa Dash in now the largest Santa Dash in the WORLD!

But this year we have Newtown and Las Vegas hot on our tail who were the original record holders. It is said that this is the last year that they are taking part and because of that they are determined to win…

…but we’ll beat them all!

Why do the Santa Dash?

The Santa Dash is above all great fun whatever your athletic ability! Some people run, some people walk, some people do a bit of both and some Santas even stop off at the pub half way round (although this isn’t on the official route).

However, the Dash is also a great way to raise a bit of money for those charities which you think deserve it the most! And every little helps so no matter how much you raise, the Liverpool and Chester Santa Dashes are a brilliant, fun way to do it!
