NZ Santa Run

A major fundraiser for the Graeme Dingle Foundation, the Santa Run concept is simple – a 2-3km fun run/walk in a Santa suit! Each adult entrant receives a free Santa suit as part of the entry fee. The courses are kept easy, so everyone can finish, with minimal training and are highly visible for maximum impact.

Our recipient charity is the Graeme Dingle Foundation who is a leader in positive child and youth development building resilience and self-belief in New Zealand’s young people.

Started in 2008 by Lactic Turkey Events, the Santa Run has grown from an Auckland only event to having Santa Runs all around the country.

Shaun Collins from Lactic Turkey Events said “This is a great family event and is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness. Last year we had groups of workmates running, and we would love to see more of that this year.”

We provide Santa Suits to adults entered, but there have been awesome outfits and dressing up in previous years. Kids under 13 yrs get a Santa hat. Lots of elves, Rudolph and other characters also make an appearance at the event.
