Runners of all abilities will be taking part, we welcome children and dogs; children under 11 must run with an adult, dogs must be on a lead. If you want to dress your dog in antlers (where would Santa be without Rudolf) please ask for permission first! All children and dogs must be happy to run and take part. Prizes for the first Santa's across the line (male , female and child categories).

Park Run at Heaton Park is regularly attended by up to 200 runners every week; so potentially you could be running with around 200 other Santa's we're sure this will be quite an exciting experience and definitely lots of fun, we really hope you will join us and make this an unforgettable day.
