Virtual Santa run

Dress up as Santa and spread festive cheer by running or walking 5K at your own pace, around your local area, with family and friends!

Be part of something amazing this year and run or walk 5K at your own pace, in your preferred place with family or friends to raise much needed funds for Lymphoma Action at the same time as spreading festive cheer and having fun!

December is a busy month as everyone gets ready for Christmas. Probably the busiest of us all is Santa, as he prepares to deliver gifts all over the world. Celebrate Santa with us by participating in our Virtual Santa Run!

Kick off the festive cheer by dressing up in your Christmassy gear with family and friends. Go for a festive 5K walk and take in your local Christmas lights. Or, go for a festive jog on the road, on a trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or at home!


How does this work?

This virtual race can be run (or walked) from any location you choose - it's your race at your pace. 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!

  • Event date: Saturday 5th – Sunday 6th December 2020
  • Distance: 5 Kilometres
  • Location: All across the UK!
  • Registration fee: £5 per adult, children join for free
  • Sponsorship target: £50


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.
