Event Info

Saltford Santa Dash

Saltford Santa Dash will be a little different this year. In place of the usual mass run, you are invited to enter a virtual “dash”.

Run 5k or 5 miles anytime between 5th – 19th December 2020.

As an example, two local routes have been mapped out for participants to run or walk. Alternatively, you may choose to run your own route.

Please see the maps below or find the routes on the Race Nation app after registration opens on 1st October 2020.

Santa hats will be available for you to wear on your virtual “dash” and medals will be awarded upon completion. We will email details on how to collect your Santa hat nearer the event dates.

Registration will be through Race Nation in 2020.

Any questions ? Email saltfordsantadash@gmail.com


In 2020, there will be Santa themed scarecrows scattered around Saltford village to support the virtual event. A trail will be mapped out for people to follow and go Scarecrow hunting.

Local residents – please join in by creating your personalised Santa themed scarecrow- and tell us where to find it by completing the short form found on this link:
