Mountbatten’s annual festive fun run, Santa Dash, is returning to Ryde on Sunday 8th December with hundreds of Santas, reindeer dogs and Santa’s Little Helpers set to take on the 3km or 5km course.

They may not be dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh, but Santas running, jogging or walking along the Ryde Esplanade course is something to share in, as registration for this year’s dash is officially open!

Everyone who takes part will receive a Santa Suit and everyone who crosses the finish line receives a special Santa Dash medal, in recognition of their support for Mountbatten.

The run starts at 11:00 on Sunday 8th December, with registration open from 10:00. Santas will dash along the Esplanade and through Appley Park, before finishing the circular course back where they started – Ryde Superbowl.

All ages and abilities are welcome to sign up (even if you’ve been naughty or nice!). Entry is £16 for an adult ticket (+ £3.50 P&P) and £10 per child (under 16).
