Santa Dash

Kick start Christmas by putting on your running shoes and Santa suits for the Appreciate Liverpool Santa Dash!

On Sunday 5 December at 9:30am runners of all abilities will cross the start line as they take part in a day of enjoyment and atmosphere right in the heart of Liverpool.

The 5K fun run starts at the magnificent Pier Head in front of the famous Liver Building where the entire public space will be completely full of Santas.

By signing up and choosing to run for Nugent this year, you can help us to continue our work of protecting children, young people and families who are vulnerable and at-risk through our schools, care homes, family and community services.


Entry costs £23 for red suits, £25 for blue suits and £11 for the mini dash.


You can sign up online through the ‘enter here’ button on the BTR website (link below) or if preferred, you can enter in person at the BTR Liverpool Santa Dash pop up shop at St. Johns Centre in Liverpool City Centre between Monday 1st November and Saturday 4th December at which time the venue will be open seven days a week. You can also collect your Santa suits and wristbands there.
