The Santa Dash is now in its 4th year and is a firm festive favourite amongst the regular runners!

Cammo Estate, Edinburgh




Age 11 & over

  • 5 km trail running


Dress up as a Christmas pudding, an inflatable turkey (yes this has happened) or just come along in your running kit and hope not to be called Scrooge! The Santa Dash 2023 is around the trails of Cammo Nature Reserve in Edinburgh which has beautiful running routes along riverside paths, through fields and around historic buildings. There are 2 distance options to choose from: you can either dash around the 5K or the 10K. Kids over 11 can take part in the 5K and we'll also offer a FREE elf dash (approx 1k) for the wee people in your lives. Fancy splitting the distance? Bring a running buddy along and run the 10K RELAY option! Race to the finish to earn your mince pie and hot chocolate. £1 of every entry will go to Young Lives vs Cancer (formally known as CLIC Sargent)

This event is part of Santa Dash 2023.
