Runs, Walks & Challenges: Get Active

Sun 6 December: Virtual Santa Dash

One of Merseyside’s most popular public events is the latest casualty of the Coronavirus pandemic – as this year’s Liverpool Santa Dash is brought to a halt. However, the race organisers - BTR - have come up with an exciting plan for 2020 to still enable eager dashing Santas to still get their festive fix!

The virtual option will enable Santas to still pull on their running shoes; dash socially distanced with a small group of friends; enjoy a festive fun run experience wherever they are located; and still earn the bespoke Santa Dash medal. And there’s still a choice of red or blue Santa suits.

Sign up for the BTR Virtual Santa Dash here, then please get in touch if you'd like sponsor forms or help with setting up an online sponsorship page with JustGiving in aid of Wirral Hospice: 0151 343 0778 / thank you.


If you'd like to enter a run, walk or challenge in aid of Wirral Hospice, please sign up for these events directly with the organiser (links on each event listing below) then please get in touch if you'd like a running vest / t-shirt and sponsor forms or help with setting up an online sponsorship page with JustGiving in aid of Wirral Hospice: 0151 343 0778 / thank you.
