Join us for the London Santa Run!

01 Nov 2019

Please note: entries are closed for this year’s Santa Run but check back in 2020. Take a look at our other challenge events here 

The London Santa Run returns on the 8th December, where 4,000 Santas will take over East London's Victoria Park.

Join the Barts Charity team for some fabulously festive fun and the chance to win fantastic prizes! 

This year, our Barts Charity Santa Run team is going to be bigger than ever, with 50 places available! You can choose to run or walk 5k or 10k and you get a free Santa suit to get into the Christmas spirit. 

If that wasn't incentive enough, we have some fantastic prizes on offer:

  • If you sign up before the end of November you'll be entered into a prize draw for a £50 Experience Day voucher
  • The top fundraising team will win a two hour session for twelve people in a private Lucky Voice karaoke room
  • The top fundraising individual will win a beginners climbing lesson at Mile End Climbing Wall

All the prizes have been kindly donated and you can read the T&Cs here

Why run for Barts Charity?

  • You’ll get a fundraising toolkit and ongoing advice from our team
  • You’ll receive a Barts Charity T-shirt for training  
  • You’ll have support on the day from our very loud cheer point 
  • You can choose to raise money for your hospital, medical research, our Greatest Gift Christmas Appeal or where its needed most

The fine print

  • Registration fee is £25 for adults or £10 for children between 8 and 15 years old
  • Minimum sponsorship is £100 but we can give you advice on how to reach this - why not hold a bake sale or place a collection tin in your workplace? 
  • Full T&Cs for all prizes


If you have any questions about this run, or would like more information on how Barts Charity will use your donations to make a difference, please get in touch with Jaimal on 020 3934 0048 or via email.
