London Santa Dash

Thank you so much to all our San-tastic runners who took part in 2017’s London Santa Dash on Sunday 3 December.

Two thousand Santas took on Clapham Common and dashed their way to the finish line of our 5k or 10k festive fun run. 

Mulled punch, mince pies, snow, brass bands, festive tracks…it was a brilliant way to kick off the festive season and raise vital funds for the Play therapy team at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Arun's story

“It’s an amazing sight to see thousands of Santas all running together. It’s a special thing – you feel part of something bigger.” Arun is treated at GOSH for kidney and urology conditions and, alongside his family, will be taking on London Santa Dash this December for the second year running.
