Every week around 800 Park Run runners www.parkrun.org.uk run in the park and every year they choose to support us with a Charity Santa Dash at Heaton Park to raise much needed funds in support of our work with people experiencing homelessness in Manchester.

You don’t need to be a Park Run runner to take part, everyone is welcome and there will be runners of all abilities. Children and dogs are also welcome: children under 11 must run with an adult, dogs must be on a lead.

Entry is £10 per adult, and £5 for under 11’s, entry includes one of our fabulous Santa suits.

Gifts will be given out to the first Santa’s across the line (male, female and child categories).
This event is a lot of fun, we really hope you will join us and make this an unforgettable day.

You can buy your suit on the day or buy one here – it’s easy!
