Virtual Santa run

Dress up as Santa and spread festive cheer in your local area by running or walking 5K!

Put on your Christmas gear and help spread festive cheer by participating in our Virtual Santa Run!

Run or walk 5K at your own pace, in your preferred place, to raise much needed funds to support people affected by lymphoma. You could go for a festive 5K walk in your local area and take in the Christmas lights around your neighbourhood. Or go for a festive jog on the road, on a trail, or even around your garden!

If you would like to organise this with a group of friends, don't forget you could always run or walk individually (or in line with the most up-to-date Government guidelines) and then get together for a virtual finish line party on Zoom! 


How does it work?

This virtual race can be run (or walked) from any location you choose, so long as you stay safe and follow the most up-to-date Government guidelines. Adults will receive a Santa hat and felt Santa mask, and children will receive an Elf hat and felt Elf mask, so the whole family can look and feel festive together!

(Please note: we can only post out hats and felt masks to those who book a place before Tuesday 1st December).

You can set up a Facebook fundraiser (we have some handy tips here!), or a JustGiving page to make online donations really easy. (You can also link your JustGiving page to Strava or upload photos and videos of your run) You will also be helping us to raise vital funds to keep our services running as we support even more people affected by lymphoma than ever, through this worrying and anxious time.
