Santa Dash Brighton is BACK! Join us on Saturday 8 December for the ultimate feel-good festive 5k run along the seafront.

Special Rockinghorse Charity Place Price Entry Fee: £15.00 p/p or £65 for a team of five people. We’re asking for £50 minimum sponsorship for anyone that wants one of our places. Everyone who raises £50 will be entered into a draw to win a Christmas hamper. We only have 50 places at this discounted entry price, so get in touch today! Your entry fee includes a Santa suit (which can be put on over normal clothes on the day) and a medal.

All funds raised will go towards our Christmas appeal. With your support, we aim to provide jaundice monitors for community midwives in Sussex to carry out post-natal check-ups and test for jaundice with new babies at home and in clinics, without the need for them to be taken back to hospital. 

At last year’s event, 600 people took part to raise over £3,500. If you’re interested in running for Rockinghorse in the Santa Dash Brighton this year, please call Hollie on 01273 330044 or email

There will be a FREE 400m race for younger children on the day (they will get a medal but not a suit). Own Place Entry places can be purchased at and cost £17.50 + £1.60 handling fee = £19.10.
