A major fundraiser for the Graeme Dingle Foundation, the Santa Run concept is simple – a 2-3km fun run/walk in a Santa suit! Each adult entrant receives a free Santa suit as part of the entry fee. The courses are kept simple, so that everyone gets the opportunity to finish with minimal training necessary and are hugely visible for maximum impact.
Our charity of choice is the Graeme Dingle Foundation, leaders in positive child and youth development building inner strength and self-belief in New Zealand’s youth.
Started in 2008 by Lactic Turkey Events, the Santa Run has sprouted from an Auckland only event to having Santa Runs across the whole of NZ.
Shaun Collins from Lactic Turkey Events said “This is a great family event and is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness. Last year we had groups of workmates running, and we would love to see more of that this year.”
We provide Santa Suits to adults entered, but there have been amazing costumes and dressing up in previous years. Kids under 13 yrs get a Santa hat. Lots of elves, Rudolph and other characters also make an appearance at the event.
