The Great KidsCan Santa Run/Walk - Invercargill


Wed 7 Dec 2016, 6:30pm

Where: Queens Park, Gala Street, Invercargill, Southland

Restrictions: All Ages


Listed by: Shaun Collins

The Great KidsCan Santa Run/walk is all set to go in 20 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 receives a free Santa suit as part of their entry fee. Kids under 13 will get a Santa Hat instead of a Santa suit.

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 all around the country!

So what are you waiting for! Enter as an individual or grab a bunch of mates and enter as a team.

- Registration: 5pm - 6:20pm at the event centre. At the registration, you collect your race number and Santa suit.
- Race Briefing: 6:15pm
- Start: 6:30pm
- Prizegiving: 7:15pm

Santa Suits:
Santa suits are adult one size fits all sizing. Santa suits are men's (trousers) or ladies (skirt), top, hat, belt and beard. You will be asked to choose men's or ladies when you enter. Santa suits are provided on a first in first served basis.

Kids under 13 years will get a Santa Hat instead of a Santa suit.

Santa suits are collected from registration on event day. Feel free to bring some scissors to make them more appropriate to an NZ summer Christmas!
