Each Santa in the City running place will get your very own Santa Suit, individual running number and medal. You will also be provided with a fundraising pack to kick start your fundraising! 

Santa in the City starts on the north side of the Millennium Bridge.You will begin by running over the Thames and enjoying the world famous views of Tower Bridge and the Shard. The route then takes you along the historic south embankment, past the Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, some of London's oldest pubs, like the Anchor and past Borough Market. You will cross over Southwark Bridge and hug the north embankment running towards the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. You will then return through the City, back over Southwark Bridge and towards St Paul's Cathedral, via Millennium Bridge to the finish line on St Peter’s Hill, completing a truly iconic route!

No previous experience is needed for a 5km run like this. The route is relatively flat and you can run, jog or walk. Santa in the City is a great way to get you into the festive spirit.
