Santa Dash Anyone?

The Virtual Santa Dash is a 5K fun run to be done with friends, work colleagues, family and/or pets, or on your own. Take this 5K challenge anytime in November or December 2022. Do it in your running gear alone or dressed as Santa or Christmas elves! Earn the official Santa Dash Medal and goodie bag. Simply register for the event and you will be given access to the Virtual Marathon Series runners portal where you can submit your evidence before or on your run day.

All you need to do now is register – here’s how:

  1. Register here – you will receive a confirmation email to log in to the Secure Charity Portal where you can pay your registration fee [this covers the cost of the place, medal and goodie bag only – and does not go to the charity].
  2. Breathing Matters will get notification that you have signed up for your challenge and will contact you – or you can contact us directly at
  3. Set up a Breathing Matters personal fundraising page.  It is up to you how much you want to raise for Breathing Matters; there is no minimum sponsorship limit.
  4. Sort out your Santa outfit and start running!!!

The Virtual Marathon Series are also offering two prizes.

  1. The first one is for the fastest time in Christmas fancy dress, become the Christmas world record holder
  2. Secondly, to the person who raises the most money for their chosen charity by Christmas Day. 

They will donate £250 to the charities chosen by the 2 winners and they will receive a running goodies pack from their partner Run Through in the post. For more information, visit the registration page.
