Everyone! And your dog


£12 adult | £7 children


  • Online booking is now closed - to register on the day come to the Red Barn, Woolacombe between 9am - 10am. Please bring the correct money - we can't guarantee that we will have enough Santa Suits, but we do have places available. 



We will be walking, running & skipping along the beautiful Woolacombe Beach and raising vital funds to care for local families whose lives are affected by cancer & other life limiting illnesses this Christmas.

You can choose our 3km or 5km route to suit your age and ability. Dogs on leads are more than welcome to join in the fun too! Registration is at 9am at The Red Barn, with the actual event predicted to start at 10.15 on the beach. 

You will be given a Santa suit on the day to wear in order to really kick start the festivities and get you in the mood for Christmas... we even have festive bandanas available to purchase for your four-legged friends to help them look the part! 

You will be treated to a free hot drink and mince pie, courtesy of The Red Barn, to help you warm up after your run or stroll. You will get a goody bag and a medal! There will also be a beer festival and live music to entertain you while you get into the festive spirit.

To sign up it's £12 for adults / £7 for childen. This includes your Santa suits & token for hot drink and mince pie, which you will pick up on the day from 9am at The Red Barn. All children must be accompanied by a registered adult.


  • Dogs

You can get your four-legged friend their own bandana to wear so they are not left out. Buy your doggy bandana for £5 on the day at The Red Barn.


  • Raising money

Registration from our Santa Stroll and Run will go towards the cost of running the event and the purchase of suits, therefore we encourage you to raise sponsorship either individually or as a team for this event where possible. 

We recommend making an online fundraising page. This takes just a couple of minutes, then you can share the page with everyone on facebook, twitter and by email. You will be amazed at how quickly you can hit your fundraising target.

It's best to use Virgin Money Giving to set up your fundraising page. It is 100% reliable and, while Just Giving works just as well, they charge charities higher fees. To set up your page simply click this link and follow the steps on Virgin Money Giving.

You can also download a paper sponsor form here! 

Maybe you could get sponsored for doing something different like completing the event backwards etc? Also for doggie owners taking part who could resist sponsoring your pooch dressed in their Christmas best or their new bandana! You could set up a JustGiving page for your dog, showing off their cutest pose and send it to friends and family to help boost your efforts.

Thank you to all our sponsors who make this event possible: Marsdens Devon Cottages, The Red Barn, Woolacombe Sands Holiday Park, Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks, Koola Life, Hunter Holiday Homes & Woolacombe Tourist Information Centre
