Join thousands of jolly Santas to spread Christmas cheer as you run, jog or walk this 5k or 10k course in London’s Victoria Park.
It’s the perfect way to burn off those mince pies before the season of overindulgence really gets underway. And it’s even more fun to do as a team — with your family, as a work Christmas outing or with a group of friends.

A tide of Santas carried us round Victoria Park, it’s a bonkers event but brilliant fun!
Help bring Christmas to children in need
Ca Depend lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo. When his parents died, he moved to live with his grandparents who are too elderly to work.
He says, “During Christmas we don’t have anything to do because our family is poor. In other families I know that they share meat, they wear new clothes, but we don’t have anything like this. I like to play football. I don’t have a football though. I made this football myself from plastic bags.”
Ca Depend’s school place is funded by ActionAid. He explains: “I didn’t go to school before. On my first day of school I was very happy to wear my uniform and to go to school like other children. The first day I arrived at school my heart felt clean.”
