Grab your trainers and Santa hat and make the dash in support of Beatson Cancer Charity.
The annual Santa Dash is considered by many to be the start of the fun festive season but this year, like many things, we need to adapt. Beatson dashing Santas can still get their fill by taking part in our virtual event.
Run, walk or cycle and remain safe within your small, socially distanced group wherever they are based.
This year, you can dress up in your festive attire and go your own way!
Online registration has now closed (as of Monday 14 Dec). You can still register in the following ways if you plan to take part:
In association with St Enoch Centre

Santa Hat Collection Dates
Due to the updated restrictions, hat(s) will be posted out for orders up and till 9th December. A stock of hats will be available at St Enoch Centre or from our office for bookings from 10th December.
Due to the updated Scottish Government guidelines, we suggest you collect your hat either from (depending on your area):
- our offices on the Gartnavel/Beatson campus (10-2pm weekdays),
- or from the customer service desk, first floor in St Enoch Centre (9am-6pm weekdays).
- if you can't manage this, then why not wear your own or a festive jumper. You can still take part.
If it is not possible for you to collect your hat but you would like us to send yours retrospectively, please let us know and we will do so after the Christmas break.
Please email with any queries regarding this firstname.lastname@example.org
Please make sure to present the email confirmation of your booking in the order to receive your hat(s) – or a screenshot is also fine!
