Not long now – Watch for all the info you need on The Liverpool Santa Dash 2016

It officially marks the start of Christmas in Liverpool every year and it is just weeks away. The Santa Dash is back on Sunday 4t December and we spoke to race organiser, Alan Rothwell for all the info you need on how to get involved.

Organisers BTR Liverpool are encouraging Santas to sign up to make the 5K festive fun run bigger than ever before in a bid to win back the world title from Las Vegas. More than 1,500 Santas have already registered.

The Radio City Liverpool Santa Dash starts at Pier Head Liverpool at 9.30am and finishes outside Liverpool Town Hall. After dashing round the city, the Santas collect a commemorative medal when they complete the fun run. A Santa suit is included in the entry fee.

The little ones also have their very own fun run – the 1K Mini Dash is for youngsters aged 12 and under. It starts in Castle Street when the main Santa Dash has finished, and also finishes at Liverpool Town Hall.

The official charity partners are Radio City’s Cash For Kids, Everton in the Community, and Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice through the BTR Footsteps Fundraisers initiative.

The Liverpool Santa Dash is brought to you by organisers BTR, the team behind some of the biggest and most popular running events in the region.

Its portfolio includes the Vitality Liverpool Half Marathon; Tour Of Merseyside; Tunnel 10K; and award-winning Wirral Half Marathon and 10K.

BTR Race Director Alan Rothwell created the Liverpool Santa Dash, he commented:

“The Radio City Liverpool Santa Dash, in association with Blue Air, is an event like no other. It really is a festive spectacular with the city being transformed into a sea of red, blue and mini Santas. It’s a spectacular sight and a real highlight in the BTR even calendar. Come and join the fun, it’s a day you won’t forget.”

Blue Santa suits and Mini Dash numbers are both limited to 500 places – so participants are encouraged to enter early to guarantee a place.

Santa suit collection is available from Rapid Discount Outlet from 1 November to 3 December, seven days a week. Or enter online at
