Join Santa's Army on the Christmas Weekend!

Local charity KidsOut, in partnership with Leighton Fun Runners, will be hosting the highly anticipated Santa Dash on Saturday 29th November at 11 am. 

Crowds will gather to cheer on the hundreds of Santas as they embark on their 2.5-mile run through the streets of Leighton Buzzard. All participants, including adults and children, can enter for just £5 and a Santa Suit can be purchased for additional £5: 4-legged companions can enter for free! Runners can take part in a best-dressed christmas-themed competition. As runners return to Church Square, a commemorative medal, presented by Santa Claus himself, will be awarded to all finishers.

The Santa Dash is simply the start of a day packed with seasonal entertainment. For a small charge, children can visit Santa in his grotto all in aid of KidsOut. The Christmas weekend will offer ample entertainment, including a fun fair, craft stalls, a food court, street entertainment and much more.
