With an incredible outpour of popularity on our Facebook event (over 6 Thousand People signing up!) we have decided to create The Stockholm Santa Run which is a 3KM ALL CHARITY RUN in the beautiful park of Tantolunden in Stockholm. This is a fun, non competitive run where everyone is a winner! It's about getting together, having fun, do something beautiful for people in need and also get some exercise. This year in the refugee crisis Help is needed the most - let's do something good and all run for the cause.
The Santa Run Stockholm is an event for EVERYONE. Participants under the age of 14 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. There is no entry fee for children below the age of 14 but they will need to have a full santa outfit to be able to participate.
Everyone is welcome! Invite your family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, strangers…
No previous experience is required. Let's show the world the best Santa Run ever! You are welcome to walk, power walk, jogg, run, it's all up to you.
All the money that is raised from the event after the basic costs are paid (security, police permission, etc) will go to charity organisations including Aktivisfonden (For children with special needs), Stadsmissionen, Röda korset (Red Cross) and Rädda barnen (Save the children).
The organizers of the event will not take out any economical benefit of the money raised since the idea of the run is to help people that need it more. That's why we will try to keep all the costs as low as possible, so there will be no unnecessary fancy things. After the race, each participant will get a diploma emailed to them with the result of the total money that was raised from the run, and where it went.
Everyone who signed up, will get an email with the information about when and where to collect the start kits. (Please do not send individual emails and ask this question. Unfortunately we don't have the posibillity to answer everyone).
Together we will make a change!
