Santa Claus Is Running To Town For Acorns Children’s Hospice


Held to raise funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice, the Acorns Santa Run on Saturday 5 December will kickstart the festive season as hundreds of ‘dashers’ suit-up as Father Christmas for a Yuletide run around Birmingham City Centre.

Registration for the event, which this year starts and finishes at the Barclaycard Arena, is open for fundraisers to support Acorns and its work caring for children and their families across the West Midlands.

All those entering will be given their very own fancy-dress Santa suits and participants can take part in a 5km Santa Run or there is a 2km Santa Stroll for those who want to take things slightly easier.

Entry is £15 for adults and £10 for under 16s and includes a Santa suit and a medal. Under 6s are free and although they cannot be given a Santa suit due to size restrictions, they can attend in their own festive fancy dress.
