What to wear?!
Dig out and don your finest festive costume and join us for this year’s Santa Dash as we turn Lymington into a sea of Santas and festive friends to help fundraise for Oakhaven Hospice. You choose whether to wear a Santa suit or be one of Santa's festive friends!
- A new Santa suit: We have a limited number of Santa suits. If you would like a Santa suit, the sooner you register your entry, the more likely you will be allocated a Santa suit.
- Recycle a Santa suit: If you are a regular Santa Dash supporter and have a Santa Suit saved from a previous year, could you wear it for this year's fun run? The cost of a Santa suit has not been included in the entry fee this year.
- Be a festive friend: We’ve decided to give Santa a run for his money and invite all budding superheroes, elves, snowmen, reindeer, puddings, crackers, and fairies - all festive friends can join in the run!
Do I have to run fast?
This is a festive fun run! Some people will be running fast, others will be jogging sedately, walking, strolling, skipping, hopping - or even scootering!
Children in decorated buggies are welcome, as are mobility scooters. If you are bringing your dog feel free to dress them up – but short leads are a must.
'Tis the season to be jogging (fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!)
Help us raise funds for Oakhaven Hospice!
Can you help Oakhaven further by raising sponsorship for your Santa and Festive Friends Fun Run?
All funds raised from this Santa Dash will help local people during the most difficult of times. With only a small proportion of our costs funded by government sources, every donation makes a difference, enabling us to continue providing exceptional care, comfort and support to patients facing end of life and their loved ones, both within the Hospice itself and out in the New Forest, Totton and Waterside community.
