Barrow Santa Dash | Outdoor Market area | 23rd November | 1.30pm – 3.30pm
Join 100s of Santa’s as they dash around Barrow town centre on a 4km run/walk in aid of St Mary’s Hospice. The Santa’s will set off at 2.30pm from the outdoor market area on Portland Walk and will complete five laps of an 800m course around the pedestrianised shopping area within the town centre.
The event is open to all ages and abilities and participants will receive a Santa suit to wear during the event. This is surely a spectacle not to be missed, so even if you don’t fancy taking part, come down to Barrow town centre and support the runners. There will also be street entertainment and live music in the town centre to get you into the festive mood.
