Sunday 10 December 2023
Priory Park, Reigate

We hope you had a fantastic day at the YMCA Santa Run – please save the date for next year’s event on Sunday 15 December 2024!

Santas of all ages and abilities are invited to join us for a 1 or 3-mile run or walk to raise money for YMCA East Surrey and spread some festive cheer.

  • 10:30 | Priory Park, Reigate
  • Adults and children (4+)
  • £12.50pp – includes free Santa suit*, drink (tea/coffee or squash) and medal

We will have a few event stalls on the day selling mulled wine, hot drinks and bacon/veggie rolls.

* If you would prefer not to include a Santa Suit with your booking, you can select not to receive one when registering. As this is a themed run, we do ask that you come dressed in Christmas fancy dress to make sure we keep the festive magic alive!

Fundraising - help the Y-Bus take to the road!

All money raised from YMCA challenge events will go towards our Life Change Fund set up to help transform young lives in East Surrey.

This year, we are aiming to fund a new ‘Y-Bus’ – a mobile youth club on wheels to reach young people in areas where there is little or no youth provision. Our trained YMCA youth workers will use the bus to provide an informal setting for activities and discussion, as well as provide signposting to other services if needed.

You can help the Y-Bus take to the road and transform young lives in East Surrey!

As a registered charity, we believe in keeping our event prices as low as possible to ensure that everyone has the chance to take part. If you are able to donate or fundraise to support our charitable work in the community, we would be very grateful. You can make an additional £10 donation with your entry when registering or set up a fundraising page. Any amount you can raise will help to transform young lives in the local area, so please consider fundraising for us.
