The date of this event is now confirmed as the 13th December 2015
If you're looking for something festive and fun for the family this Christmas then join us at Old Trafford for the ninth annual charity Santa Run. We have a 2km Family Fun Run and a 5km Santa Run, we also have a best dressed competition! This year Manchester United Legend Denis Irwin will be starting both races. Further details are below:
5K Santa Run (11:30am) – Participants will take in the sights of the Imperial War Museum, The Lowry and Media City UK before crossing the finish line in the Players' tunnel.
2K Family Fun Run (12:30pm) – It doesn’t matter if you run, jog or walk as long as you are having fun! The Fun Run is one for all the family as you make your way around the stadium, before crossing the finish line in the Players’ tunnel. This route is fully wheelchair/buggy accessible.
Cost - After 8 years of the same price, this year we have had to increase the entry fee for Adults & Families as other costs have grown. Your entry fee covers costs that are incurred which include things like online booking fees, traffic management, santa suits, medals, signage and advertising. We are still the best value Santa Run in the North West and we hope you'll join us again this year to support more great charities!
Best Dressed Competition – All runners dressed up as Santa or in fancy-dress have a chance of winning an exclusive signed Manchester United item; we have prizes for the best dressed child and best dressed adult.
Winners’ Medals – Participants will receive a Santa Run medal when they cross the finish line.
Make a Difference – Runners are invited to fundraise for any of our partner charities or any other charity/community project close to your heart.
One Ticket, Two Runs - Use your ticket to run the 2km Fun Run or the 5km Santa Run, or if you're feeling really fit, both!
Parking will be available in car park E2 which is situated on Sir Matt Busby Way and will only be accessible via Chester Road due to road closures. After parking, please cross to the stadium and walk under the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand at the North side of the Stadium to the International Suite.
