Santa Dash or Dawdle 2017


In the interests of our Santas safety we have postponed Sunday's Santa Dash or Dawdle at Hollingworth Lake.

As disappointing as this is, your safety is our priority.

With more snow and cold temperatures forecast across the region over the next 24 hours we have taken the decision not to go ahead with tomorrow's event.


 We'll be rearranging it for the New Year and we hope that as many of our Springhill Santas will join us then.

January Jingle?  Festive February?

As soon as we have more information about the new arrangements, we will get in touch with you all. 

Once again, we are so sorry to have to postpone this wonderful event  but we know you'll understand

Our Springhill Santas’ safety is paramount!!




Join hundreds of Santas, young and old, two legged or four, for what has become an amazing spectacle around Hollingworth Lake on Sunday 10th December.

2016 saw over 600 Santas donning red and white, join us this year to run with the Santas......... it's a fantastic experience not to be missed.

Registration costs £12 per adult, and £8 per child for which you'll receive your very own santa suit, a commemorative gift, a specially designed medal, a bottle of water, disposable rain mac (if needed!), a banana and that all important SPONSOR FORM.

Last year this event raised a staggering £20,000 for Springhill Hospice, with your help, we can beat that total, helping Springhill Hospice serve the communities of Rochdale, Middleton and Heywood.
