Santa Dash Brighton is back!

Join us on Saturday 8 December for the ultimate feel-good festive 5k run along Brighton and Hove seafront promenade.

The annual Christmas challenge is supporting Rockinghorse and we have 50 charity places available at a special rate on offer to our supporters (aged 11+). You can take part for just £15 per person or £65 for a team of five people. Your entry fee includes a Santa suit and a medal.

We’re asking our runners to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship and to say thank you, we’ll enter you into a draw to win a Christmas hamper! All funds raised will be donated towards our Christmas appeal this year for the Community Midwife Team at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.

With you help, we aim to provide jaundice monitors for the community midwives to carry out post-natal check-ups and test for jaundice during home visits and in local clinics, without the need for families to have to go back into hospital.

At last year’s event, over 600 people took part to raise a fantastic £3,500. To get involved this year, contact Hollie on 01273 330044 or email

As well as the 5k fun run, there will be a free 400 metre race for younger children (under 11’s) at 10am before the main event at 10.30am. Everyone taking part will get a medal (Santa suit not included) – simply turn up on the day.
