Join our Santa Dash 5k Run

The 5km route starts on the running track, then flows out through the grounds of Bolton Arena before returning to the running track to finish in front of a cheering crowd. Everyone who enters the Bolton Arena Santa Dash is required to wear a Santa suit and will be awarded a race medal upon finishing the event.

Price per entry is £10 per person with a Santa suit
Price per entry is £7 per person without a Santa Suit


In addition to the main 5km run there is also a 1km Mini Dash around the track at Bolton Arena especially for children up to 12 years of age (no Santa suits necessary). The Mini Dash starts at approximately 11.00am once the adult event has finished. Parents can run with their children, but parents do not have to enter. The Mini Dash is for children only, price per entry £3.

All profits from the event will be donated to Bolton Hospice.
