The Liverpool Santa Dash Course

Yes once again thousands of Scouse Santas will be turning Liverpool City Centre into a sea of red (with a splash of blue) as they fill the streets with a mix of excitement and festive fun.

Now generally acknowledged as the curtain raiser for Christmas, the Liverpool Santa Dash attracts runners, joggers, uni-cyclists, stilt walkers, business groups and whole families as they make their way around a 5K course around the city.

As always the Santa suit is provided and they can be collected from the one of two locations -

the BTR office in Hoylake and also

101 - 110 Civic Way, St. Johns Shopping Centre, unit location is at the top of main escalator, from Wednesday 1st November.


The Mini Dash is a 1K short run for children aged 12 and under. Entries are limited to 750.

Parents do not need to enter the Mini Dash but can accompany their children around the course.

The Mini Dash will start approximately 11.00am - 11.15am, once the road network is clear of 5K runners.

A P.A announcement will be made confirming the start time on the morning. The start line is half way along Castle Street. The finish line is in front of the Town Hall.

Children's suits are available in two sizes.
