The Great KidsCan Santa Run is all set to go in 17 centres throughout New Zealand.

A major fundraiser for KidsCan, the Santa Run concept is simple - a 2-3km fun run/walk in a Santa suit!

Each adult entrant receives a free Santa suit and a goodie bag as part of their entry fee.

The courses are kept easy so everyone can finish, with minimal training, and are highly visible for maximum impact.

As mentioned, Santa Suits are provided to adults entered, but there have been awesome outfits and dressing up in previous years. Lots of elves, Rudolphs and other characters make the run, and are rewarded with spot prizes for the best dressed at each venue.

Our recipient charity is KidsCan, with proceeds from the event going to ensuring all Kiwi kids affected by poverty can look forward to a brighter future.

Started in 2008 by Lactic Turkey Events, the Santa Run has grown from an Auckland-only event, to having Santa Runs at the same time and date in Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland. Last year there were over 3,500 Santas nationwide and we added South Auckland, Rotorua, and Taupo. This year we are aiming for over 5,000 santas and bring Auckland North (Albany) , Auckland West (Te Atatu), Napier, Gisborne, Palmerston North, New Plymouth and Queenstown on as new venues.

So what are you waiting for! Enter before the 1st November for a reduced rate.
Registration: 5pm - 6.20pm at the event centre. At registration you collect your race number and Santa suit.
Race Briefing: 6.15pm
Start: 6.30pm

Santa Suits:
Santa suits are adult one size fits all sizing. Santa suits are mens (trousers) or ladies (skirt), top, hat, belt and beard. You will be asked to choose mens or ladies when you enter. Santa suits are provided on a first in first served basis. Because Santa suits are one size fits all they are only provided to participants 13 years +.

Santa suits are collected from registration on event day.
