Santa in the City Run

Thursday 6th December, 7pm

Paternoster Square, London

Starting at St Paul's Cathedral, going over Millenium Bridge and along the river Thames, this year's Santa in the City Run is the perfect way to get you, your friends and your colleagues in the festive spirit.

Show your support for people living with cancer this Christmas by walking, jogging, or running around this city centre course in aid of Look Good Feel Better. No experience needed for this 5K relatively flat course which will take you past some of London's most iconic sites. All entrants receive a free Santa suit (and beard), race number and medal. 

You can sign up as a team or an individual and registration is only £23

We ask that all runners please try and raise a minimum of £50 which will directly fund a place at one of our Workshops, ensuring more people can face cancer with confidence this Christmas. Upon registering you will be provided with a dedicated fundraising pack to help you reach your target.
