St Gemma’s-santa-dash-picRaising incredibly vital funds for St Gemma’s Hospice is a great way to start the festive season, helping St Gemma’s bring joy and happiness to their patients. Depending on your ability you can dash through the city, taking in the Christmas sights, for either 1 or up to 5k. The dash is suitable for Santas or Elves of all ages and abilities (wheel chair/pram friendly route).

Plus hundreds of other Santas to pound the pavements with. Don’t forget to get your cheeks all rosy with hot drinks and free food at Little Tokyo after the dash!
