Sponsored Santa Dash, Sun 15th December, 2pm – 4pm, Manchester United
Update; This was the first time we’ve entered this exciting running event. A fabulous team from the Co-op ran in the 2013 Manchester United Santa Dash they absolutely loved the experience and next year we’re hoping many other runners will represent us in this event. Thank you Co-op team for raising £260.00
If you fancy following in the footsteps of your United heroes while raising money for charity, and getting into the festive spirit at the same time, then the seventh annual Manchester United Foundation Santa Run is just for you!
The fun run is organised by the Manchester United Foundation and over a 1,000 Santa clad runners took part in the run last year! The worthy causes supported by the Foundation – Francis House Children’s Hospice, The Christie and Unicef – will all benefit from the money raised by the entrance fees, but runners can also raise money for Barnabus through sponsorship. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship for us. If 50 or more runners register to run for Barnabus we can have a charity stand which will raise awareness and we will even get a team picture together in the stadium.
There’ll also be plenty of festive fun around the ground on the day, with Santa taking time off from his preparations to drop into his grotto, a brass band playing your favourite Christmas tunes and a fancy dress competition.
The Santa Dash is taking place on Sunday 15 December; you can opt for either the 5km route for more serious runners or the 2km family fun. Both start and end at Old Trafford, with the longer route starting at 11.30am taking in the Imperial War Museum, the Lowry Theatre and Media City. The shorter run starts at 12.30pm and will head around the stadium.
Both runs end in style, with the finishing line at the end of the player’s tunnel in the Theatre of Dreams itself!
It’s £20 for family entrance, £10 for a single entry and £5 for kids. The price includes a Santa hat for kids, a full Santa suit for adults and medals.
