Helensburgh Winter Festival – 2017 is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SC046881)

Santa Dash

ONE of the highlights of Helensburgh Winter Festival is the Santa Dash run on the Sunday and attracting up to 300 enthusiastic Santas!

This is an event for all ages and there are even four-legged Santas spotted in the mele! The event is organised by Helensburgh Round Table as one of their main charity fundraisers of the year and this year the beneficiary is the Helensburgh and Lomond Food Bank.

A spokesman for the organising team sad: ìHelensburgh & District Round Table want to make this year’s Santa Dash more affordable, for everyone and particularly for families. Therefore, we have reduced the cost to register to take part.

Adult registration for 2017’s Santa Dash is only £6 and children under 16 can take part for £4. Instead of a full Santa Suit participants will receive a Santa Hat and a wristband that will entitle them to a goodie bag at the finish line.

The Santa Dash route is the same as last year; the full Dash is approximately 4Km – however there is Santa’s Secret Short Cut for younger Dashers and those who want to reduce the distance by half! Registration for the event is online at: http://santadash2017.eventzilla.net/web/event?eventid=2138921907

Hat & Wristband Collection Times at Helensburgh Swimming Pool are: Friday, December 1 from 6.30pm to 8pm, Saturday, December 2 from 11am to 1pm and Sunday, December 3 from 9.30am to 11am.
