The Great KidsCan Santa Run is all set to go in 10 centres throughout New Zealand.
A major fundraiser for KidsCan, the Santa Run concept is simple - a 2-3km fun run/walk in a Santa suit!
Each adult entrant receives a free Santa suit and a goodie bag as part of their entry fee. The goodie bag includes a $30 voucher to spend on Mizuno shoes at The Athletes Foot.
The courses are kept easy so everyone can finish, with minimal training, and are highly visible for maximum impact.
As mentioned, Santa Suits are provided to adults entered, but there have been awesome outfits and dressing up in previous years. Lots of elves, Rudolphs and other characters make the run, and are rewarded with spot prizes for the best dressed at each venue.
Our recipient charity is KidsCan, with proceeds from the event going to ensuring all Kiwi kids affected by poverty can look forward to a brighter future.
Started in 2008 by Lactic Turkey Events, the Santa Run has grown from an Auckland-only event, to having Santa Runs at the same time and date in Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland. Last year there were over 2,000 Santas nationwide and we added Dunedin, Tauranga and Whangarei to the list of venues. This year we add South Auckland, Rotorua, and Taupo.
So what are you waiting for! Enter before the 20th November for a reduced rate.
