Santa in the City 2019

Show the world that humanity can win this Christmas!

Get festive by taking part in a 5k race through London, dressed as Santa Claus! Enter by yourself or as part of a team - what better way to celebrate the season of goodwill than by getting sweaty with your mates or colleagues?

As part of #TeamHumanity you will receive the very best support, including:

  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting, stickers and collection tins
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team

There is a £24 registration fee, and we'd love you to aim to raise £50 in sponsorship. We will be with you every step of the way with fundraising tips and inspirational stories of our work.

With every jolly mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. At Refugee Action, we’re determined to ensure that Britain is a country that truly welcomes refugees. By taking on this challenge, you will be getting us one step closer to that reality this Christmas.

Ready to run for humanity?
