Don't miss this fun festive 5k wherever you are! 

This red sea of festivity is a sight to beho-ho-hold – adults, children and even dogs are all welcome! Let’s make this year the best yet. 

All funds raised at this year's Beatson Santa Dash will go directly to Beatson Cancer Charity to support patients and families affected by cancer.

Send in your best-dressed efforts for a chance to win some top prizes. We can’t wait to see some Jack Frosts, Reindeer Clans, and other festive friends!

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!
