Everything you need to know about your place in the Barrow 4KM Santa Dash

Join us for an afternoon of fun to get you in the festive spirit and raise vital funds for St Mary’s Hospice. It’s not a race, but there will be the opportunity to time your run – so you can run, jog, walk or jingle all the way!

Registration: Arc Building (Shop at the entrance of Barrow Marketing) Portland Walk, Barrow-in-Furness LA14 1HU. Timing chips will be issued on registration.

Timings: Registration opens at 1.30pm and Santa Dash starts at 2.30pm with a warm up beforehand at 2.20pm

Who can take part: Everyone! The route through Barrow Town Centre is flat and accessible. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. No dogs sorry.

Can I bring friends and family along? Of course! To avoid disappointment, anyone wanting to take part should register before 16th November. If you register on the day, the price will be £15 per person and we cannot guarantee to time your run.

There will be entertainment and refreshments throughout the town centre, so be a fun day for all the family.

What should I wear? A Santa Suit of course, included in your registration fee but also, depending on the weather, we recommend warm layers and waterproofs (ponchos will be available for a small donation), as well as trainers or comfortable shoes. Your Santa Suits can be collected from ..................., just take along a copy of your confirmatory email of registration.


All Santas should report to The Forum on completing their "Dash", there you can return your timing chip and receive a Santa Dash Finishers medal ! Afterwards, why don't you stay in the Town Centre and enjoy the Christmas Lights Switch ON. Prizes will be awarded for Santa Dash Fastest Male, Fastest Female, Fastest Boy (under 14) and Fastest Girl (under 14) - winners will be announced on Social Media and on the Santa dash website.

How am I helping St Mary’s Hospice?  “As a family we were overwhelmed, we were lost. The St Mary’s Hospice at Home team came into our lives and gave us the help we needed to bring Lee home. Without their support, Lee would have spent his last hours in a place where he was unhappy and afraid, instead of at home surrounded by the love of his family” – Gill, mum to Lee, who passed away aged 27 from Leukemia.

St Mary’s was born from the belief that no one should face a life limiting illness on their own. Whether it is on our 9 bed inpatient unit, at home, on a Living Well programme or with Family and Bereavement Support, we will care and understand, give support and courage at the hardest of times. It costs £3.2 million every year to provide our services free of charge to the South Cumbria Community – so every penny you raise at this year’s Santa Dash will ensure we are able to continue to be here for as many people as possible when they need us for as long as they need us.

Many thanks to the sponsors of this event, Barrow BID & Orsted, without their support we would not be able to proceed.
