Go on then, how much is it?

It only costs £17.50 (+£1.60 handling fee) to enter and that includes your race entry, your Santa suit and your bespoke medal.

We are also encouraging every Santa to try and raise a minimum of £20 for our chosen charity, Rockinghorse, helping children across Sussex.

Is there anything else going on?

The Santa Dash is always great fun and amusing to see. It makes a great photo! Parents bring their children down to watch so we hold a kids 400m race before the main event at 10:20am. Itís free, just turn up and we give them all a medal at the end.


The Brighton Santa dash race route is a nice flat out and back run. The course heads west up the Seafront Esplanade for 2.5k. Once you get to Hove Lagoon you turn around and head back to the Start / Finish line.


As well as the portable toilets at the start line there are also four other toilet stop opportunities on the course at 200m,1.5k, 3.5k and 4.5km


There are a number of NCP car parks within walking distance of the course. There are multi store car parks on West Street, Russell Square and Churchill Square. There is also hourly parking on the Kings Road (seafront road) itself.

Travel by train

Brighton train station is situated in the middle of town at the top of Queen's road. From the station the seafront and our Santa dash venue is about a 10 minute (15 minutes if you are carrying a sack of presents) down West Street and along towards Hove. Keep your eyes out for a sea of red hats!


There are no changing facilities so we recommend arriving at the event in your sports kit. You'll pick up your suit at the start.
