About Derby Santa Run.
The Jingle Jog is back with a new name, Derby Santa Run!
This Christmas, join us as we dash through Markeaton Park as we bring you – the Derby Santa Run on Sunday 5 December!
This year the Derby Santa Run is bigger and better than ever, with a whole host of charities teaming up to bring something the East Midlands has never seen. Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity and Chesterfield Royal are teaming up to make the run the biggest yet.
This festive event is perfect for the whole family… whether you want to hop, skip, dance or run the route “yule” be sure to have lots of fantastic festive fun. As a gift from us to you this Christmas, everyone who signs up to take part will also receive their very own Santa suit (under-3s are free but do not receive a suit) before they start the run; while you’ll also receive a finishers medal and goody bag once you’ve crossed the finish line.
And to get all the family involved, the event is also open to your ‘Santa Paws’, so bring your pooches along too*. To help make the event ‘pawsome’ for the four-legged friends taking part, there’s also the opportunity to purchase a Festive Dog Bandanna when booking – because we wouldn’t want the pooches to feel left out!
This event is organised by Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity and Chesterfield Royal.
Markeaton Park is set to be filled with Santas who are invited to take on either the 2.5km route (one lap) or the 5km route (two laps) as they help spread the Christmas cheer.
