Your Christmas hasn’t really started until you’ve dressed up as Santa and dashed around Danson Park with your #ChristmasCrew!

The sight of hundreds of families, friends, babies in buggies and even dogs dashing around Danson Park dressed as Santa is one you’ll never forget! It’ll put a smile on your face and put you in a festive mood.

Some of our Santa Dashers at last year's event.

The Hospice Santa Dash is a 5k festive fun around Danson Park, Danson Road, Bexleyheath, DA6 8HL

Registration fee:

  • Adults £15
  • Children £10
  • Family (2 adults & 2 children) £45
  • Registration fees include a Santa suit and medal

Your registration fee covers the running costs of the event and by raising sponsorship, individually or as a group, you will be helping our Hospice team to offer choice to the families we are caring for this December.

Last Christmas, many of us spent time apart from our loved ones and went without those traditions that make our Christmas feel special. We had no choice. This Christmas, you can help the families we are supporting to have the Christmas of their choice, making memories and spending precious time together.

All our Hospice Santa Dashers will receive a medal and a warm welcome as they cross the festive finish line. Places are limited so sign up your #ChristmasCrew now!

Changes to this year’s Hospice Santa Dash

This year to help keep everyone as safe as possible, there will be two start times.

  •  10:30am
  •  11:30am

Can’t make Sunday 5 December?

If you can’t make Sunday 5 then why not take part virtually! You and your #ChristmasCrew can walk, jog or run around a place of your choosing and carry on that Christmas tradition of dashing around dressed as Santa! We will send you a full Santa Suit to wear whilst you dash.

  • Decide when to do your Virtual Santa Dash
  • Set up a Fundraising page  and share your page with everyone – once you hit 5k and a £50 fundraising target we will post you a Santa Dash medal to show off with pride!
  • Share a photo of you doing your walk, run or jog, send us a screenshot from your Fitness app or email us !

We understand that you may be nervous about returning to events again. Please be assured that we will follow all Government guidelines to ensure this is a safe event.

We hope that the Hospice Santa Dash can take place without any restrictions, we will continue to monitor the situation, and work closely with Danson Park to ensure that the event can go ahead safely. The safety of all our participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators will always be our number one priority.

If national restrictions are in place in December this will become a virtual event and we do hope you will support us still. Once you’ve signed up, keep an eye on your inbox for email updates between now and Santa Dash day.
